    Could this be an 11 week old pullet???
    The wattles and comb throw me off some.
    But compared to its brother its about half the size. I wish i could get them to stand next to each other long enough to take a pic but no luck yet lol.

    Looks like a pair to me. I have a brooder full of 10 week old BBS Orps and while my girls don't have quite that much wattle, they boys are VERY distinct at this point. The main thing I've noticed early on is the shape of the tail is very, very different (starting at like 4 weeks).
