I know it's not the best picture but at a glance how many little roos would you say are in this pic
Much too early to tell with any authority. If someone tells you so and so many cockerels now, you very likely to end up getting rid of future pullets as well.
WAY TOO YOUNG and agree with drumstick diva but I have my guesses...Post again when they're at least 6 - 8wks.
Agree it's too young, especially with Orpingtons. Some of them will fool you even til a few months old.
I don't know how many cockerels or pullets, but I want them all regardless .
Two of them have pink patches where their wattles will be. Would that be a good sign or do they tend to color up in the face faster than other breeds.
I am by no means an experienced backyard flock owner, but have hatched a few Orpingtons in the past 3 years. This breed is slow to mature. What I have observed though is that cockerels will color their combs and wattles earlier independently of the size of their comb.
Your chicks look very cute. I love lavender Orpingtons!
At this age, there are no definite cockerels. I would post new photos when the chicks are at least 6-8 weeks old.
