    I was pretty sure this blue orp was a roo, especially standing next to my lavender orpington, but I'm wondering if I was wrong. Both are about 10-11 weeks. Tail feathers aren't in yet.[​IMG]

    The comb isn't super red though...just pink. Plus the tail isn't all the way in. I know that those things can sometimes indicate hen.
