This is our first venture into keeping chickens. I went to the local co-op two weeks ago and bought 6 buff orp pullets and 1 buff orp cockerel. I'm beginning to wonder what type of cockerel I got. Can anyone i.d. this one at two weeks old for me. The cockerel chicks were mixed two breeds into one brooder when I bought them. I will not say what the other was so I don't influence opinions. I'm pretty sure he's a rooster just from observing them and this one acts different than the rest. This one seems more protective of the rest and herds them so to speak when we reach in. Thanks for any help.
