    After a close look, I may have answered my own question. These are 3 of the packing peanuts I got from Ideal on 4 December, makes them 7.5 weeks old. Buff Orpington roosters (I think). The first two pictures are undoubtedly males with the big combs, etc. The third has some gender confusion with a much smaller comb and smaller body. I think that I am starting to see some comb development in the 3rd, though. What do you think?

    My opinion, and I'm not a pro, but I think you have 2 roos and 1 pullet. [​IMG] And yes, I definitely think Buff Orp.

    Beauties, though, anyway!

    Those are all boys. At that age, the females would not have ANY pinkness to the combs and wattles at all.
