Hi, need help. Any way of proving that they are English or American lavender orpingtons

English Orpingtons look like walking beach balls. Your's aren't even close to the English body type.

So they are American? Thanks

They are nice birds. But they aren't even close to being show quality. Lavender is still a project color, and a lot of Lavender Orpingtons in the U.S. are pretty poor examples of the Orpington breed, at this point. Your's are no exception. Their build isn't right, even for 'American'. The tails are much too 'pinched', and your rooster has a lot of gold through him. They are not breeding quality.
