7 week old mottled Orpingtons 2 cockerels, 2 pullets, and?

post #1 of 9

The one I have my doubts about is at the foreground of all but the last photograph.

I'm thinking pullet...most of the photos it looks like a pullet with only #3 and #4 making wonder due to possibly some spiky feathers and a bit of blush in the comb.

 

Probably pullet, but this one may be a wait and see.

I agree, but I would definitely keep an eye on that comb. If it reddens up over the next few weeks, you will know you have a cockerel.

I think it is a cockerel  with the bit of wattles starting also.

I've been torn as to whether it's a slow developing cockerel or a fast developing pullet. The two cockerels' combs and wattles came on like gangbusters a couple weeks ago. The two pullets have no color to their combs and just barely visible wattles even now. The tweener...geez. I'll just be patient and let it tell me what it wants to be. No need to pressure it into a decision. That wouldn't be psychologically healthy...;)

Looks like 2 cockerels and 3 pullets.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

You should probably start your own thread and not hijack someone else's. Looks like a cockerel to me.

Sorry to offend but I don't know how to start my own thread honestly! Maybe you could tell me. Thanks for your input and I apologize to the original posting person.
