    I have searched and searched with no luck. I have seen many ways but nothing concrete. Can anyone tell me how to sex buff orpingtons at 4 weeks old?

    I don't think you really can. Best bet is to compare combs and wattles, as far as I know -- redder combs are more likely to be males. I have wondered if the darker colored chicks aren't more likely to be females, as well.
