    Got 5 "Isa Brown pullets " from TSC 16 weeks ago. I think they are Buff Orpingtons. I thought I had 2 roos in the group, but they haven't crowed yet. This one , also,does the egg call when he/she gets upset. Any ideas? Boy or girl?[​IMG]

    Cockerel - how old is he? I'm not certain he is pure Buff Orpington - maybe he is just hatchery type

    Thanks! That's what I thought also. So he just tries to sound like a girl so I don't rehome him. Lol
