I am a first time chicken owner and i have 8 chickens that are in their 4th week. I picked out two Buff Orpingtons (hens) from the same box and named them Thelma and Louise. Thelma however has gotten a lot bigger and has quite a different color than Louise. She is much darker and more of a multi-color than the other Buff who is just one yellow color. Her comb is also much larger. I am praying she is not a Roo. Would love some feedback on her breed and if she is a he?

I'm not sure on the gender, given how young the chick is.
But I agree that chicken is not Buff, and probably not an Orpington (because Orpingtones are supposed to have white feet, and those look yellow.)

Rhode Island Red is more likely, although several other breeds are also possible.
