    I wouldn't make any decisions about gender until a few more weeks. They all look pretty similar as of now.

    Oh no!!!! Really??? I thought surely at 7 weeks you'd be able to tell... UGH!!!!! The one I think is a roo is the only one whose comb is looking a little pink to me but just in the last week.... They all look exactly the same except that one is lighter grey color ....

    well you probably have to reapply.... I did both feet to make it last longer..... some "toes" hold up better then others [​IMG]

    We had 2 lavender orph. Our first attempt to raising the breed. One of our chicks was grabbed by a dog. The one left, did look like it was getting somewhat long singled feathers, but not long enough to make me think roo. But one day it crowed! It is still young but it's tail is not as long as I expected. I bought another chick to hopefully get a pair. But don't be fooled by a short tail.

    When did the comb start to change color... This is my first attempt at Lavender Orps and I have NO CLUE!!!! With my Marans and my bantam cochin the combs started getting red at 3ish weeks.... so these Orps are SLOW!!! or all girls and well there is just no way given my knack for hatching boys :)
