    Is this Buff Orpington a rooster. I sure hope not. I think out of 15 birds, I only have 4 hens!

    How old is he/she? If it was a rooster I would think it would be crowing by now. Looks like a girl to me.

    If s/he is older than, say 18 weeks, I vote pullet.

    I thought my girl was a guy because she was so red in the comb, and she was the first to lay.
    I say girl. She has a sweet face.
