I got 4 chicks a few weeks ago at our local feed store. Sometimes I look at them and think cock a doodle doo, other times I just see girls and can't believe I thought otherwise. One of them looked like he/she was getting a little pink, but I now think it may have gotten a small cut and bled... they like to try and fly. Anyone want to take some guesses? They are supposed to be Buff Orpington pullets.

EDIT- The links didn't work...

Here is the group:


#1-I'm not saying I have a favorite, but...

#1 is to the right - she is much lighter than the others - golden...#2 is second from right...


#2 This one is the biggest of the group:



#3 Poo beaker...


#4 Last one:

They all look equal to me - that is, they are all at the same stage of comb color and wing/tail feather growth. If one lags behind the others in wing/tail feather growth, and their comb starts to turn pink before the others, it might be a roo.

The nagging doubt has been cast aside, for now. Thanks for the input! Now, off to make a coop...
