    these are 3 Orpingtons a friend gave me, they are 5 months old give or take a week or two. she thought they were hens but after reading on here and looking at pics, I am not so sure, so we decided to post pics and get everyones opinions. these 3 have long skinny feathers on their necks and backs. I have two hens that are smaller and younger and they have small blunt feathers on their backs. sooo....Hens or Roosters????

    All three are boys, but I love the color. Not a true blue. I wonder what she crossed to get these?

    OUCH! hehehe! my friend is on here, Risingstar, she says they are purebred. I read somewhere else on here that the red was called leaking? I am no expert...anyone want some roosters?
