Can someone help me with pullet or cockerel? I have a blue orpington and a black orpington, 8weeks old. My blue has had the bright red comb and wattles for weeks now. He/she, Jackpot, has larger legs and feet. But Jackpot has completely different feathering than Katie Ann the black. I have two Lav orpingtons and 1 buff. They are 6 months old and have feathers like Katie Ann. Jackpot started feathering out much later than Katie Ann and she is soft to touch and Jackpot's feathers are heavy and spiney to touch. They are from the same hatching but Jackpot is heavier than Katie Ann. I have thought all along that Jackpot is a cockerel but I am perplexed by the feathers.
