    I have posted before... and I thought we had almost all if not all pullets of our 7 straight run Buff Orpingtons... today they are 4 weeks old. I am now just seeing the red... [​IMG]

    This is a little boy, isn't it?

    And this one...

    Pullet?...

    I really hope this one is a girl... she is my daughter's favorite. She named her "Pinky Pie" [​IMG]

    Other pics not sure if you can tell gender here...

    I would say the first one and last one's are roos, but Pinky Pie looks like a pullet to me! [​IMG] There's some good news anyway!!!

    In my experience, the boy BO's develop pink combs while the girls combs are still chick-colored.

    PS: Also, the girls develop longer wing and tail feathers before the boys do.

    I agree, "Pinky Pie" is a cutie and a pullet! [​IMG]
