Yeah, I know. I can always hope. I've been fooled by a couple of these Orps, thinking a female is a male. He/she is just turning 4 weeks. I wanted to give this to a friend, but she doesn't need another Orp rooster, so I'd have to find a home for him. Here is the very irregular wing feathering. The brown is a poop smear, not his color. This pattern seems to happen in males much more than females in the Orps; pullets usually have much more even coverage by this age, fully feathered wings, in fact.
