I have a 5 week old Buff Orpington that I believe might be a cockrel. It has some delayed feathering compared to the other one I have of the same age/breed. I’m a first time chicken owner so everything is still so new to me. But I’m pretty positive this babe is a cockrel. The first photo is who I believe is the hen, the second and third is my mystery chicken.

The first one doesn’t look as pink in regular lighting, but still semi pink.

I ordered 15, knowing there would be at least 1 that would be sexed incorrectly. I’m sure there is another one(or2) hidden in the flock somewhere.
