Lavender Orpington Gender

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I received an order of chicks on August 25th, so they're going to be 12 weeks old on Monday. I ordered 5 female chicks (one passed away at 7 weeks old from an unknown cause that started when she arrived ). My lavender orpington has had me concerned about gender, and I figured it can't hurt to get more opinions. She has a fairly small comb that is slightly pink but can occasionally act very much like a cockerel.  I've figured that it could maybe be due to the fact the she is just dominant. Let me know what you all think! Thanks!

Pullet, she must just be very dominant. My Lavender Orp girl looked just like that and she has been laying gorgeous eggs for about 7 months now!

Definitely a pullet.

My 3 week old Lemon Cuckoo Orp cockerel has a bigger comb than that! Totally pullet.

At 12 weeks I feel confident saying pullet, even with a slow developing breed like an Orpington.
