    Hi everyone!

    I have 5 buff Orpingtons that are just about eleven weeks old. I am getting concerned because I have 3 with very large, red combs, and nice meaty legs, and two gals that are much more petite. Can anyone take a look at my photos and help me estimate the gender? This is my first flock of chickens so I am not very accurate with identifying gender. Thanks :)

    3 cockerels.
    My 13 week old BO pullets look just like your 2 girls.

    I See 4 Roos. The one behind in the first pic seems to be your fourth. I just see one pullet, the one hiding in the last pic.
