    This Buff Orpington chick is 3 weeks old and I have been wondering lately whether or not it is a Roo or Pullet. Any idea?

    Tried clicking on your links, but it said there was an error and the file did not exist. Try uploading your photos to this site directly using the button that looks like a sun over mountains.

    That's a pretty well-developed comb for a three week old. If it starts to redden shortly, I believe you have a roo. Wait a few more weeks to be sure though.
