    [​IMG] The buff Orpingtons are 13 weeks old. In this picture you can see the rooster in the back but what is the one in the front. The tail is more like a hen tail.

    I have a chicken with a face like a Rooster but a tail like a hen and I just want to know what others think it might be.

    I had a rooster, (not an Orp) but his tail took forever to come in. To me, looks like a rooster.

    And my female buff orpingtons combs and wattles didn't turn that red until their 15th or 16th week if I remember correctly. ;)
