    These buff orpingtons were hatched on April 23rd which makes them about 4 1/2 weeks old, they were bought as sexed pullets. I think I know what they are but want to make sure. I am so very impatient for my first egg....My first supposed straight run of 15 yielded 15 roos, obviously I got jipped,[​IMG] but we have one barred rock named Tweet Tweet that's staying because he is just soo friendly. But I am very disappointed that I now have to wait another 14-16 weeks for eggs. [​IMG] Anyway, here are our babies...

    1. Supposed to be a Gold Sex Link hen...is it? My two year old named her Goldie seeing how she is the only one who isn't golden [​IMG]

    2. BO hen I think, not named because they all three look alike

    I'm inexperienced at this, but I'd agree with you.

    I have a gold sex link that looks just like your #1. Her sisters are a pretty golden, and she's the wild redhead.
