Buff Brahma 16 weeks old Buff Orpington tail feathers. Here it is Christmas morning and what do we wake up to? A rooster crow! I thought for a minute was that the neighbors chicken?...oh wait, we're the only ones around here who have chickens...great. We've been out this morning looking over our flock and we think it may be our Standard Buff Brahma, whom we love She/he is 16 weeks old. I didn't want to freak out while they were little as to whether they were male or female and thought I'd just wait and see.. I mean hear. I'm a newbie and learning as I go. I have two Buff Orpingtons that have a tiny amount of black coloring on their tail feathers but their bodies look like hens, is this coloring normal for pullets or could they too be roos? Thanks a bunch!
