    This fella is approaching 2 months old, he's a Cochin x Orpington [or red star or black Australorp..] but he's huge compared to the others. I'm thinking Roo, but what do you guys think?

    I apologize for the pic, it was taken from a cell phone [​IMG]

    Not sure, probably a girl. For everybody who gave "no comb" as a reason just so you know combs can be very misleading. Good luck!

    i'd guess a pullet orpington mix, the females can get that coloring from a buff mix.

    It'll be wonderful if he/she is a girl! Some space recently opened up in my coop [and not the way i wanted it to:(] so hopefully i'll be able to keep these cuties!
