    I was told this was a 15-20 week old Buff Orpington rooster when I got it, 10 weeks ago. I am skeptical about the age, breed and sex now. I have another Buff rooster who is twice this size and has been crowing like crazy for a few weeks now. Any thoughts?[​IMG]

    It's definitely a rooster. He looks like he's probably a buff orpington mix.

    I'm pretty sure he's a boy, but he's not a pure Buff Orpington. He is a mix of some kind.

    He looks like a buff Orp mixed with something red. Definitely a rooster. Orpingtons can be slow to mature, and maybe he's just skeered of the older guy.
