    I know it is a bit early, but you know about curiosity and the cat. So to the point: I have about a dozen Lavender Orpington chicks from Chicken Scratch Poultry (Hink JC line). 2 are must be cockerels, most of the others have very small combs with flesh colored lines for wattles and 3 are mystery chicks. Below is a pic of 1 most likely cockerel and 1 mystery chick (the one with the largest comb and wattles). Does the second chick look more boy or girl? Thanks for any help.

    At 4.5 weeks, would vote boy with the amount of comb it has.
