    Hello Everyone,

    Just wandering if there's a way to tell what sex my Buff Orpington's are, they are about 3 weeks old?

    I'd say in another week or two you will know better. Around this age the boys begin getting pink combs and the combs get taller than the female combs. Pullets will not show pink or red combs until almost ready to lay.
