His/her spurs are bigger than all of them But no crowing yet... Hen or roo?
19 weeks BTW
Hmmmm I'll be interested to hear what everyone will have to say. I only have one Orpington, so I am not at all qualified to help you, unfortunately. But, my Orpington cockerel is 10 weeks old and already has bigger wattles than the one in your picture and has a huge crow that he loves to belt out...all the time! Not all my cockerels are crowing yet though, so I don't think that all birds crow at exactly the same time. I would guess that since yours is 19 weeks old already that you should have either a crow or an egg really soon to let you know whether you have a boy or girl!
That comb is to small for a rooster. I have 2 of them one of them has a comb just like that and I'm getting eggs almost every day from.
please check out my Barred rock one too
Same bird from the other thread? Still a pullet
Neither. She's a pullet! (Under one year old.)
Cockerels usually start crowing by 16 weeks and have very large dark red combs/waddles by then. The girls start laying about when their comb and waddles darken. You can expect an egg any day!
BUT THAT one compared to this one is way bigger
Yes, but it's not a cockerel.
Every chicken is different, but males would be much bigger.
This is my cockerel. He's 19 weeks too:
Trust me, both those birds are girls.
