    I know these are blue orpingtons, I brought them from the state fair as a pullet and cockrel. any ideas on which is which?

    I have no idea what he is. I brought it out of a assorted bantam bin at tractor supply.
    This is him when he was a chick.

    this is him now. he has clean legs, and poofs like a EE around his ears

    1) I disagree on the first. If her earlobe is white, I'd bet a hen she's an ancona. Mine also has black-speckled yellow legs.

    3) Cockerel left/front (wattles & larger comb), pullet right/behind

    No idea on the rest.

    I think the first is a mottled japanese bantam pullet. Look up pics online. I just saw one at a show and she looks just like it.
    Second is a buff laced cochin maybe??
    The blue orp cockerel is the one in front with the bigger wattles.
    I think your rooster is an EE
    Not sure on the last one. EDIT: Probably a d'uccle

    Seeing the chick pics, I'm inclined to agree - my ancona had a lot more dark on her when she was little.

    1) Mottled Japanese Hen
    2) They are Bantam Cochins. The hen isn't true to any recognized color. The rooster (I can't really tell from that picture) looks like he may be a project Gold Laced Cochin, the hen may be a project as well which would explain her discoloration.
    3) Both Blue Orpingtons are Pullets
    4) The Rooster is an Easter Egger
    5) Porcelain D'uccle Hen

    I agree that both of those Orpingtons are pullets. However, they look to be more lavendar/self blue than true blue. They have no lacing at all...
