    I was able to hatch two Buff Orpington eggs this spring. The first was Beatrix, on the right, a day early. The second was Felicity, on the left, a day later. They are both seven weeks old. It looks like I'll have to rename Felicity Felix, as it's looking like a he to me.

    I agree with your assessment of genders - looks like you have one of each. Congrats!

    I have 2 buff orpingtons and one has a huge comb and wattles, and the other has very little. They are both hens. I was trying to find some pics to show you but my computer is giving me trouble. But if there are no other signs of the one being a rooster, it might just be like mine. I'll try to add a couple pics to show you .

    These two are the exact same age hens

    While Lurky could be right, if I were buying them I would agree with your assessment.
