I'very got some mixed thoughts on this chick...wondering if it's a cockerel or pullet. It's one of three chicks we have and I already have one possible roo.

I'm thinking cockerel hide.gif. I don't have any experience with blue orps but the comb and wattles look pretty red and pronounced for 8 weeks.

It may be a bit younger. This one was a lot smaller and had less feathers growing than the other 2, even though the breeder said they were all the same age.
