Looks like a cockerel to me.
I agree; cockerel. Sorry. (
Hard to tell. But I would also guess male.
Yes they are both lavendar orpingtons and are both 9 weeks old! these are my 1st 2 chickens and have been concerned how differently they look! i love them both very much and they are inseparable so very concerned! Appreciate any help and advice on how I could keep a male without having tons of chicks!
You can easily keep a rooster with your hens without having tons of chicks. Hens will lay eggs with or without a rooster; the only difference if they are living with a rooster is that the eggs will probably be fertile. As long as you gather the eggs daily, you won't notice any difference with how the eggs taste or look, and there won't be any chance of the eggs hatching. In order for fertile eggs to develop, a hen (or incubator) has to maintain favorable incubation conditions for the eggs for at least a few hours. Favorable incubation conditions are not found in a refrigerator, or even on the counter-top.
