    oh dear. I was suppose to have two Buff Orbington Pullets but now I am thinking one is a rooster.

    I got them at 2 months old and they both looked the same.. though the one in question was a little bit bigger than the other one. The waddles and comb have come in much faster than the other one making me feel that SHE is actually a HE


    They are about months 4 old now

    You can see the difference in the two's waddles and comb

    That is not a pure Buff Orpington, IMO. Shouldn't have all that white on it, not at all. At the very least, it is very poorly colored for a Buff Orp. Male, it is, though.
