    I bought a mix of chicks at 9 weeks old. The lady I bought them from said she'd swap them for hens if I ended up with roosters. They are 15 weeks in these pictures. Can anyone help me with gender and breed?? I only know the grey ones are lavender Orpington.

    For the lavender Orpingtons - at 15 weeks it's perfectly possible they are all girls, just with 2 developing faster. I can't see any suspicious rooster feathering but closer individual photos would show these (if they are there).
