    Do you have a pic showing the feet? That said, this bird looks a lot like my golden comet pullets...what were you told about its type?

    I got three at the same time from a guy who told me they were Buff Orpingtons. I also raised 6 others from day old that I got at a local feed store, these were also buff orps.

    If the bird behind it is the same breed, age etc... then I am guessing roo.

    Yeah, if the other chickens the same age and breed, then it's a rooster. [​IMG]

    It's legs are pretty thick too compared to the one behind it. Isn't that a sign of a roo? I have some girls about that age and none of them have combs that large or red.

    ROO, Looks so much like a Buff Orp Roo. Sorry but I guess roo. Looks like you have a pretty little pullet to go with him though.

    He should be about 14 weeks if the age I was given is correct. When I got him he was supposed to be the same age as my other hand raised girls but he was a good bit smaller, maybe better feed. He is the same age as the other one behind him so I think roo as well.
