    Hello! I'm new to BYC and would like some opinions of why my Buff Orpingtons are. I purchased them as straight ruling and still can't tell what I have other than one who looks to be a rooster. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

    Nice to have you joining us! I'd say your first and third pictured there are boys. Anyone with a big comb and dangling wattles will be a boy. How old are they?

    If you have five birds, I'm seeing two cockerels and three pullets.

    They are supposedly almost twelve weeks old. Thank you so much for your help!
