    Im new to this site, and new to owning buff orpingtons its the only one I had hatch out of 3 eggs, so I hoping its a cockerel, but if its a pullets thats ok to, I know most people on her would pray for a pullet, but im a rooster fan i love them especialy the game ones, I own 3 of them as well lol, anyways heres a pic of my buff orpington, [​IMG]
    The crowned is big & its waddles are bright red, it started growing them at 4 weeks old, it hasn't started crowing yet, and its currently inside house cause its coop is being repaired for safety from predaters, Thanks!!
