    Any Buff Orpington experts out there? This BO chick is 6 weeks old. It started getting a red comb and wattles at about 3 weeks old. A friend of my husband assures me she is a pullet because of her tail feathers. What do you guys think...is she a Maxine or a Maxwell?
    Will be keeping it either way but I'm still hoping for a pullet.

    This was about 3 weeks ago

    Maxwell.. The feathers your friend is referring to won't appear for at least another month.

    Quote:I think he was referring to the fact that it has such a big tail, not saddle feathers, I should have been more clear in the first post. [​IMG]

    My BO's are about that color and size, But they don't even have close to that big of combs. Your's must be Maxwell.[​IMG]

    Does anyone think just maybe "she" is developing a little early? [​IMG]
