Hello everyone!  So the chicks are now about 7 weeks old, and now it's looking like we may have an even split of cockerels and pullets in the Lavender Orpingtons (If this hold, I was right about the definite rooster, #4, and one of the pullets, #3).  Charlie, the Wheaten Ameraucana is definitely a pullet (the coloring solved that it turns out), and Scout is probably a cockerel (going by the developing comb, and attitude).

 

This is Charlie now!!

 

And Scout (Who I'm afraid is going to be clean faced, but ah well!)

 

The Definite cockerel Lavender Orpington who has been named Jean Lafitte

 

The Lavender Orpington Pullet, who has been named Odette

 

This one is almost definitely a cockerel, but has no name yet:

 

And I'm leaning toward (hoping!!) this one is a pullet (and also doesn't have a name yet)

I agree with your guesses, except the last one looks more like a cockerel so far. smile.png

Charlie  is a doll.    The lavenders need more time.
