    I have 3 Buff Orphingtons that I purchased 5 weeks ago as Pullets. But am now wondering if they are actually cockerels. They are now 9 weeks old. Thoughts? [​IMG]

    I have tried to include as many photos as possible. They each have different color bands on so I can tell them apart

    White band is kind of suspicious (pretty large red comb), but the other two are almost certainly pullets.

    Are these English Orps?

    Honestly. I am not sure if they are English or American Orphingtons. I bought them at a swap meet and all the person said where they where Buff Orphingtons. I have never dealt with Orphingtons. All I have have ever had was RIR, Marans and Doms
