    I got 5 orpington who are now 10 weeks old. Anyone who can determine the gender?

    #4 i am pretty sure is a roost, and #5 i am pretty sure is a hen. But anyone who can tell for sure?

    Pictures with a natural stance would be easier, but here are my guesses:

    1. cockerel
    2. pullet
    3. pullet?
    4. cockerel
    5. pullet

    #4 is the only suspect on my list of being a cockerel, but as the PP stated, standing would be a better pose. #5 is definitely a pullet. I guess I'm questioning everyone else... a wee bit.

    Do Orpingtons really get that much red at such a young age? I would of guessed 5 is the only pullet.

    I don't doubt that my guesses are unreliable. I can see what you mean about the red.

    I've had experience with this as well.The roosters form a nice comb and wabbles.See only 4 has nice wabbles.Also the feathering on number3 gives it away.Its tails clearly a curly and it looks like its wetted 1 clue.And its wabbles and combs.
