    Buff Orpington. Was supposed to be a pullet. I think it's a cockerel.

    This one is a hard call saying to me it still looks like a pullet. Wait to see if any sickle feathers develop.

    How old is this bird? You will need to capture some images that are not blurred by movement so that we can see the bird clearly....use food to get him/her to hold still if that is a challenge.

    X2 on that. The age of the bird is especially important in sexing BOs.

    Clear photos and the age of the bird would definitely help. However, I'm leaning towards cockerel for now.

    Yes, with that new picture, definitely cockerel.

    Again, age is important in deciding between point-of-lay hen or cockerel. So how old is this bird now?
