Hi All!! This is my first post on BYC and my first 2 months with chickens... LOVE them so much already!! All of my chicks were purchased just days-old, now all about 7 weeks old. Here’s a pic of both my Buff and Lav Orpington taken today. I hunch the lavender cutie named Viola might actually be a Romeo! Anyone want to weigh in? Obvious difference in comb and wattle development, but could this one still be a pullet maturing sooner?

Does anyone think it’s too soon to tell? That’s what a few chicken keeping neighbors are telling me! But the replies I’m getting are confirming my suspicions!

7 weeks is just the right time to tell, the Lavender is definitely a rooster.
Thank you! I’ve have 12 young chickens, hoping for pullets… but I knew that the odds of having a roo or two in the group we’re high with the many different breeds I chose (only 2 sex linked). Crossing my fingers that he is not too aggressive. We live in a predator-rich area of Oregon, so no free ranging for these birds! We’ll see... thanks again!
