Hello,

Hoping you can help identify gender. I ordered as a day old pullet from My Pet Chicken but am seeing some red! 😅 I’m in the suburbs and would have to make arrangements if it’s a roo. Any opinions? Thanks in advance!

That comb looks pretty big for 8 weeks. A bit too early for saddles. Hard to tell with the shredded feathers typical for lavender birds. I am leaning boy. Agree you should wait a bit longer.:)

Lav orps are suuper early combers, so they're tough. I'm leaning boy, but you'll have to hold out until 12+ weeks for hope of a girl, unless you get crowing.
I was also leaning boy, but having a hard time seeing whether those saddles are pointy or not, cause I didn't know age.
