    i have buff orphington chicks. i believe they are between 8 and 10 weeks old. not real sure. i cant tell if they are gonna be male or female. i feel like sometimes ive got 4 males and one female..other times i think 4 females and 1 male. ive not yet heard any trying to crow..but that just may be theyre still too young. any help would be appreciated!! TIA!! 2017-05-30_11.16.34.jpg 2017-05-30_11.16.34.jpg 2017-05-30_11.18.07.jpg 2017-05-30_11.14.44.jpg

    Don't see any obvious roos yet... Maybe the golden laced but can't be sure yet.

    At this point they all look like pullets. #5 is maybe suspicious- but still pullet looking to me.

    Golden laced = black/gold one, but doesn't look like a rooster right now.
