4 wk old Lavender Orpingtons

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Needing help determining if I have pullets or cockerels orbisbit too early to tell. I'm really hoping for at least 3 pullets but knowing my luck that won't happen. They are 4 weeks old. Will be 5 weeks on Saturday. Thisbis my first time with Lavender orpingtons so still learning but they're so pretty I couldn't help but get them.

I'm not familiar with the breed, but number 3 certainly is showing more wattle and comb development / colouration, so I'd say cockerel for that one.

Thanks
That was my guess also with that one just because of the color and it's more pronounced then the rest.

Id say 3 is most likely a cockerel

Thanks for the input. I known it's still early but it's worth a try finding out now. Only time will tell I guess.
