    I have a 1-2 week old chocolate orp. She was very weak and small when I got her/him and was actually worried about survival. We got passed any worry because now he/she is thriving and (even as the runt of the flock) she is very fiesty. :) the wings have been slower to develop than my other girls but [​IMG]

    they are finally growing. The guy that gave her to me used wing sexing to determine that he thought she was indeed a she....any other opinions?

    Too young to sex right now. Slow feathering can be a male trait, but since "she" had a rough start to life, it could be because of that.
