    My opingtons are 8 weeks old. This girl (Phoebe) is smaller and her comb is really small.

    This is Penny and her (I hope) comb seems to be much larger. Do you think she is a he, or is it too soon to tell?

    Buff Orpingtons are one of my favs. I would wait. I do have hens with a bit of a larger comb than other girls.

    I HOPE it's a hen, otherwise I'll have three roos and just two hens! Anyone need roosters? [​IMG]

    If you look in my picture page, scroll to the right and there is a picture of mine at 11-12 weeks to look at.
