orphinton

Good Morning All

 

I have a coming 6 week old lavender orphinton that I am trying to figure out sex on.

It sadly lost its friend at 3 day and have being raised by my silkie hen.

He/she is so friendly will come when called and loves to sit on my lap.

 

any guesses as to possible gender ??

 

 

 


and just because they were so ridiculously cute as babies :)

First photo looks like red is in the comb. Doesn't show in second photo so you'd have to look and be the judge. If any red at this age for a single comb bird it's a cockerel no question. This is supported by the fact it has holes in it's feathering at 6 weeks. I'd expect a female to be fully feathered at this time.

In the top picture it looks like a cockerel but hard to tell.  I have several 5-week old lavender orpington cockerels right now & they all have bigger combs than yours though.
