    These were from last month's egg swap. They came all the way from NC to WA State! I set five into the 'bator, 4 hatched. I lost one chick at about 72 hours (not sure why?) and the other three are growing like weeds.

    Here are pic of the biggest one:

    How old are they? All look like pullets to me at this point.

    I'd say girls then. [​IMG] I go by combs and wattles, though and I think buff orps would have SOME redness and/or wattlage [​IMG] going on by 4wks.

    They look just like mine. My 4 are a month old and I think they are pullets.
