    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]Pic 1 and Pic 2 show Blue orpingtons. Both 9 weeks old. One looks like it has much bigger wattle and comb. Feet appear to be same size tho. What do you think?

    Pic 3 and 4 is of a 9 week old chick that I was told is a buff Orpington at week old. I don't think it is. I think it's a white brahma maybe?? What do you think. [​IMG]

    Your "Buff Orpington" looks like a possible Plymouth Rock and the other one (with the little black specks) maybe a White Sussex. The to Blue Orpingtons look like cockerels to me.

    Both blue birds look to be cockerels. The white bird is a Delaware Pullet.

    I agree on both counts.
