    I originally thought this to be a cockerel, but not sure?

    It looks like a pullet to me. She has that more rounded, feminine look, vs the gangly, leggy look of a cockerel. Orpingtons can be a pain to sex sometimes, cause some of the boys are so stinkin slow to mature, but I'm pretty confident saying female here.

    She does look to have some fairly thick legs, but you don't have to tell her I said that [​IMG]
