    neither is a pure orp. but I cant see the one with yellow legs enough to do sex on but the white legged one with feathers on the legs looks to be getting saddle feathers, so a late bloomer on a rooster

    those are not pure they have feathers on the legs and both of the buff colored ones are cockerels and the white looks to be a pullet

    hmm more confused than ever now .. will wait till they either start crowing or laying to be sure - was told when i bought them from the finkley farm park in andover that they were buff orpingtons ... surely at 21 wks they will start crowing soon ..
