    These babies have been suuuuper friendly lately---following me around, sitting on my lap and shoulder and chance they get. Really hoping they're ladies as I can't keep roosters

    x2...I'm thinking pullet for your orpington, but the redness in the wattle is grabbing my attention. When a white based EE starts getting those reddish-brown wing feather patches, that indicates male, so that first pretty bird is a cockerel.

    I was thinking the top was a roo :(. He's been so sweet, going to have to find a home soon.

    Those waddles on the buff (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) are worrying me too. I have another buff that I'm pretty sure is a pullet and hers aren't as red, but she is also a little younger I think. It's so hard to tell on the buffs! I'm going to post a close up of each buff tomorrow for comparison.
