    The black one lost some tail feathers from my son 'demanding' a hug...so there should be 'more' there than can b seen...(I need to grow some more eyes...) but no ill effects to the orp, & lesson learnt by my son.

    Any input on gender of these 2 would be great! Thanks!! x

    I don't have a huge amount of experience, but they both look like pullets, especially the buff. Not so sure about the black.

    Small pale combs....females at 12 and 13 weeks. You'd see a lot more comb in males.

    Pretty girls.

    Thankyou all! I was thinking they were 'late bloomers' - some of the feathering on saddle & hackles were confusing me.
