    Needing help determining if I have pullets or cockerels orbisbit too early to tell. I'm really hoping for at least 3 pullets but knowing my luck that won't happen. They are 4 weeks old. Will be 5 weeks on Saturday. Thisbis my first time with Lavender orpingtons so still learning but they're so pretty I couldn't help but get them.

    I'm not familiar with the breed, but number 3 certainly is showing more wattle and comb development / colouration, so I'd say cockerel for that one.

    Thanks
    That was my guess also with that one just because of the color and it's more pronounced then the rest.

    Thanks for the input. I known it's still early but it's worth a try finding out now. Only time will tell I guess.
