    Take a guess and see if you can count the number of cockerels and pullets in this group of 14 Lav Orps. I put them in this pen under the barn shelter in anticipation of some wintery weather and I thought this would be a great chance to see what the BYC world thought. [​IMG]

    To me the almost center one looks male and two or three others look male.

    Good! That's what I've been thinking as well. Looks like a pretty good ratio! Jody did a pretty good job picking me some chicks for my order.

    How old are they? I have one that is about 3 or 4 months old and you can def. tell he is a Roo. But, I knew he was a roo at an early age. His comb developed rather fast.

    He is the sweetest little bird I have. He is one of very few that will let pet him. Your going to love them! Congrats on your new babies.

    If you could get some close up pics we could probably figure out for sure how many you have.

    Quote:I got them mid-September, I think. So that makes them about 3 1/2 months old, give or take.
