    Hello! I took part in a chick Easter project for daycare and fell in love with this little yellow Orpington Buff...but have no idea if it is a girl or boy and she/he is 6 weeks old (born on the 6th of April)...anybody has a guess? She is soooo friendly to the daycare kids.

    The comb and wattle are undeveloped and flesh toned and the plumage is, thus far, even throughout with regard to shade.

    I think it's a pullet because of the size and color of the comb and wattles.

    Pullet. My friend came over a few nights ago and I saw their Buff Orpington rooster about that age, and they look nothing like Becky:)
