    I think they're all roosters except for Duckie. [​IMG]

    Ugh I was thinking Pascal and Opie might be but I was hoping the two BO's were girls [​IMG]

    The light/angle for BO #2 mean I can't see enough to take a guess. I would say #1 is a boy, Opal is likely an Opie and Pascal looks rather boyish.

    Pascal is for sure a rooster (Easter Eggers can be sexed by color).

    Could you get a few more pics of both Buff Orpingtons and Opie? Nice clear profile pics would be great (like the pic you did of Pascal). I might change my mind on their genders...

    Oh dear. That is for sure a lot of pink comb for being only 6 weeks old. I would say all boys....wish I could give you a different answer.

    I'm not sure on Duckie - the other 3 are most likely roos, but Duckie doesn't have any wattles yet and looks more like a pullet to me. Here's what my roos looked like at 7-8 weeks - watch for those wattles.
