Just wondering if I need to rehome it . He she is 20 weeks old .
Looks like a pullet to me.
@nurturedgarden I think it's a pullet as well, not only by its appearance, but also because if it was a cockerel I would expect it to be crowing by now. So good news for you!
I had an Orpington just like that once. It was the gentle giant of the flock and so friendly - was really upset when I lost her. We had an orange bantam called Eggs Benedict and the orange Orpington, who, because she looked exactly like the bantam, we called Eggs Benedict on Steroids.... which soon became just Steroids, which wasn't the greatest name for such a wonderful chicken .
You'll soon see that Orpingtons lay quite small eggs considering the size they are.
I absolutely adore your chicken set up, feel quite jealous!!
You'll need to wait a few days to see if it crows.
If there is enough (interesting) food and not much stress then after it settles in it can start laying eggs if it's a girl.
You might play rooster crowing videos in the house and if it's a boy and can hear them he might answer them.
He looks like a cockerel to me. From what I can make out his saddle feathers are pointed rather than rounded. Can you get a close up of them? Also I do not think he/she is an Orpington, it has yellow legs so I think it’s a Plymouth Rock.
I'm thinking it's a cockerel. I believe I see male saddle feathers coming in.
I can't tell....
Hmm, I'm thinking cockerel. (Young male)
First picture looks like a cockerel. Second and third pictures have me questioning that.
