I have recently gone through the waiting and the confirmation of rooster characteristics that, especially in the easter eggers, was a wait for saddle feathers to be sure. The ee's that turned out to be roos had much more red in their rose comb, redder and wider than the ee pullet in your picture. I think they are all pullets. Buff Orpington pullets are a buttery yellow with white legs. I had one that looked like it had pale yellow legs but they are white now.

Me and the DH have a pit mix who is a little over a year. He helped build the coop also by picking up wood scraps then running under the bushes with them.

Buffs tend to get good size combs as pullets in my experience.

But the last couple/few look like possible to me, including that dark blue with black feet one

Quote:I will definately be posting more pics in a few weeks. Sounds promising that most people on her are pointing to mostly pullets. I am crossing my fingers that it's true. By next week 6 will be going to my sisters house if her coop is done and I didn't want either of us ending up with all roos. I'm not going to lie. I have no idea how to tell. I thought that part would be easier.

OK, so I looked at my calendar and realized that my chicks are actually 7 1/2 weeks old. They will be 8 weeks next wednesday.

Time flew by quick. I can't believe I made that mistake.
Does this change any answers?

Quote:I would lean the same way. May also be just a Rhode Island or New Hampshire Red. In any event, they will be good layers- and yes they are pullets. The only one that might be a roo is that second autralorp. The bottom white one looks like a girl at this point. Will be interesting to see how they turn out
