    Is it too early to tell if they are pullets or roos?

    Is it too soon to tell the gender?

    Yes. Its too soon. But if I had to guess, i would guess the top one is a hen, and the bottom a rooster.

    yep, looks just like my buff orpington girls around that age. Those white legs are helpful in identifying the orpingtons. [​IMG] 2nd looks like lt. brahma youngster?
