    I have 8, 4 week old chicks. There are 4 Buff Orpingtons and 4 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes. I was wondering if anyone could help me with the sexing. I think I may have an idea with the BO's but the BLRW's I have no idea because I've never had chicks with rosecombs. I've never even seen a grown chicken with a rosecomb. So what do you think? Do I have any Pullets?

    I was also wondering what you think of the BLRW's. I'm not seeing any blue on 3 of them. Do you think it will come in later or do you think that they won't have much blue?

    I don't know about the BLR, but of the Bos, I think 1, 2, and 4 are roos. It is also possible they just look a little more rooish at this age, so I wouldn't bet the farm.

    BO# 1 roo
    # 2 roo
    #3 pullet
    #4 roo
    BLRW # 1 & 2 roos
    # 3 & 4 pullets

    Thats what I'm guessing. Could be wrong, in a few more weeks you will be able to tell more.
