    Do Buff Orpingtons have to be older to determine what are roosters than other breeds? I have 5 breeds of young chicks and the Orps are the only one which I can't determine the roosters. I know I have at least 4 roosters but I am stumped.

    They are a little over 6 weeks old. I'm sorry but I'm unable to post pictures.

    Some orps are a lot slower to mature. I've seen folks here post birds that even at four months it was difficult to tell, and you can tell just about anything at that age!
