Here I thought I was a pro at guessing genders, BOs are so hard. Or Im in denial that I have roosters. :(

I bought 6 BO's, three of which I'm certain are pullets.

I think PepperJack is a boy, and I'm really really hoping the other two are girls.

PepperJack is the smallest compared to the other two, and has a smaller comb and waddles, but he seems to have rooster neck feathers coming in. The other two don't have rooster looking neck feathers, none seem to have a rooster tail or saddle feathers. I'm lost.

EDIT: Honeybunss comb and waddles look more red due to the lighting, they're the same shade as the other two.

I sure hope so, but the big red combs made me suspicious.

15 week old hatchery type Buff Orpingtons are likely getting ready to start laying in the next few weeks. Hence the growing and reddening combs.

Cockerels this age would have much larger combs and would be starting to show male specific saddle feathers.
