Then I noticed that little roo boy does NOT have any tail feathers...hmmm.
He is also built different than the girls. The girls are taller and leaner, he is still round and shorter. I also noticed that there is another Peeper who looks like little roo boy...hmmm; no tail feathers yet and short and round. I was thinking before that perhaps "she" was a runt but now I'm wondering if "she" isn't another roo!?! Do any of you Farmgirls who are wise in the ways of chicks know if this is a way to tell the hens from the roosters? I have heard that the Buff Orpingtons are broody by nature and I am hoping to hatch our own chicks next year and it would be neat to be able to tell them apart at a young age!
