    Hey all,

    Its been a few week since I've posted. And now I know for sure that one of the LOs is a roo...but I'm not too sure on any of the others. Any guesses would be great. The one that I think is the roo has THICK legs...thicker than any of the others...including the BLRW. Thanks!

    Wait for more guesses but knowing the age helps out too to determine if any of the rooish ones are actually maturing pullets.

    The Wyandotte is for sure a cockerel, the others depends on age in my opinion. They look like either honestly. Such beautiful little guys/gals though.

    Agreed, we really need age. As Orpingtons, esp the non-buff birds, are slow to mature, from the combs I'm guessing you have lots of males there. Lots.
