    Grr, we are in a place that would not welcome a rooster. I have two buff orps that were supposed to be girls, but one has a super pink comb. Opinions welcomed.

    Ok, I keep getting an error message for the upload. I'll try later with more pics.

    You didn't mention the age, I'm guessing 5 to 6 weeks old?
    Yes, looks like he could be a roo.

    Hmm. Its hard to see. Can you post a larger version of the second pic? It seems that he or she is at the age where both sexes get pink combs. Truthfully though, I don't see roo. But I'm no expert by any means.

    Yeah, I guess we *knew* but I appreciate you guys chiming in.

    Now, we'll have to find Frankie a really nice home. He really is a cool guy, we hate to see him go.

    Now we'll be waiting to see if any of the other girls will turn out to be boys as well. Patience is not one of my virtues! [​IMG]
