I have 7 new straight run buff Orpingtons that are about 2-3 weeks old. Using suggestions from people here at BYC I think that I have identified 4 roosters and 3 pullets out of my new flock of babies, but I will wait until 4-5 weeks to find out for sure. I plan on keeping only one and possibly two of those little ones and giving the rest to a girlfriend. I want a good rooster but I don't really know what to look for as far as possitive traits. I want a friendly and protective little guy but I don't know really what other physical and other traits are important. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help in advance...I appreciate all of you.
