    I have 2 split black to Lavender Orps and one lavender orps I am wondering if anyone has an idea of their sex. They are 6 weeks old and one of the split blacks had an unfortunate run in with my roos on the other side of the fence and was pecked badly on his/her head. I did not expect it to live but did [​IMG] Here are some pics of the 3

    I think your only boy is that black orp that was badly pecked on the head.

    That would be great!! I was hoping to have a roo from this group [​IMG] I have another batch of lav orps in the incubator now hopefully get a few more pullets!
    I am so so surprised the fighter made it I thought he was a goner. If he is indeed a roo he will have a nice home here [​IMG]
    Thanks every one!!
