Pullet or Cockerel

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have 4 orpingtons(7 weeks old) that I hatched. I need help figuring out the boys and girls. I also have a 7week old brahma that is quite mean and I don't know if it's a roo or not. Any input is greatly appreciated. I would also like to know if the really light gray Orpington is a splash or if it's just a light blue. I hope someone can help me. [IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG]

I agree, and the light gray one you're talking about is still considered blue. A splash would be much lighter in color with a darker blue splashed in.

x3.  Love the blues, even if they are boys!  Such an interesting color.

#2 and #3 look like pullets.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
