    Aren't they turning out to be so lovely?!?! Thank you so very much for them! They were worth every hour we drove to get them from you. [​IMG]

    Here's the dk. blue (it's definitely dk. blue and not black!) and I think you were right in thinking it is a cockerel! His wattles even are starting to grow out. [​IMG]

    Here is the lt. blue. I'm wondering if this one might be a cockerel also.

    Here is the splash. I'm thinking this one is a pullet!

    They're so cute! I hope you got a splash pullet. I never call sex this early one Orpingtons, though, so cant help with that yet.

    Thanks Cyn! I think they are pretty cute! If my calculations are correct, they should be 6 wks. old now. It really has been tricky to try and figure out that they are.

    I hope the splash is a pullet also. [​IMG] I sure have missed my sweet splash girl, Miracle.

    Me too! Do you see how dainty her legs are? She's also missing those little red wattles that the other two are getting.
