    Not a wyandotte.

    I'd say it's either a Blue orp roo or perhaps a Jersey Giant roo.

    Why does everyone say roo? I have a 14 week old pullet that is starting to look just like that. Her wattles and comb are coming in and means she will be laying within a month I hope.

    I believe these are Blue Orpingtons. The first appears to be a hen nearing laying condition, and the other two are developing the distinctive dark top feathers of a Blue roo.

    You can see a fully mature Blue Orp roo here:

    The only bird that really throws me is the last one. It could be the light, but he's actually looking a bit brown.
