    These are my lovely 17 week old 'supposedly' gold laced orpingtons. I hatched them myself and I have a horrible feeling they are both Roos. I'd love to hear other people's views on if I'm right or not.

    X2 on that; you only show one bird in the pic, and we can't see either its head or its tail. A good profile shot would help enable us to ID your bird.

    I would guess cockerel, but I'm still not sure with these photos.

    This is a cockerel, and it looks to be a mixed breed. It has some Orpington blood, but it's not a gold laced.
