    We were given some buff orphington Roos but we are beginning to suspect that one if them may be a hen. Your thoughts? Is it pink or blue?

    A picture might help, but I see you only have one post so probably cannot attach a photo. If you click the icon at the top of the screen with the mountains and sun on it, it will take you to an input screen for uploading pictures, however, I believe you must have a certain number of posts before you can do pictures, a spam guard of sorts.


    Psst, Orpington doesn't have an "h" in it. Common mistake, though.

    Ok thanks! I had tried to put a pic and thought maybe I just didn't see it.

    Here's a pic of my "girl!" My son has named her Shimmy because we aren't sure if he's a she, lol! "She's" about 16 weeks old.

    At that age, it's a pullet. There are no pointy saddle feathers on her, a sure sign of a cockerel.
