Sorry, I only meant the colour in terms of gender! I don't see anything obviously wrong with her. If the patch over the wing starts to come in deep red she will be a he though.
Now to the confusing stuff!
I'm afraid that your araucana is your Orpington (and is blue rather than black), and your black Orpington is a beautiful English araucana! I suspect that the top orp is also younger (hatched along with your araucana who is actually an orp). This explains the apparent slow feathering on #1!
