Hi I'm brand new to the site. I've kept chickens before when I was back in the UK and had a Maran, Welsummer and Cream Legbar. Recently I got some more chickens here in Adelaide. I struggled to find what I had. So I got 2 Orpington crosses and a silkie polish cross. The silkie polish turned out to be a Silkie / Orpington cross roo so I swapped him for another Orpington cross baby. My two older girls are 25 weeks now and still no eggs so far (is this normal?? my chickens in UK laid much earlier) The baby I swapped is now 13 weeks. Can you have a look at her and confirm she is a girl please. I'm sure she is as no colour in comb and wattles, but that tail is worrying me slightly. The other 2 girls never had a tail that large. I've also added a couple of pics of my older girls for you to look at as they don't seem to look like any of the Orpington pics on your site and I'm worrying slightly. I've tried to get some decent pics but they won't come out of their run at the moment as the weather here is so hot! I seem to be worrying much more here than I did in UK due to our dry, hot conditions. Thanks This is my youngest girl, as you can see no comb colour at all but she has a large tail. I think she is a pullet but would love confirmation! These are my older 2 girls, they are around 25 weeks. I'm worried as still no real comb and wattle colour. They are panting due to the heat here.
