    We are going on 8 weeks now. I’m pretty sure with all my others which who is what but this one has me stumped. It’s the smallest of all my orpingtons . It has a comb and it’s red but it’s not as big as my other boys . All my Orpingtons have pink in their combs even the girls but their combs are just not as big. There isn’t any shiny feathers or boy looking feathers that I can make out with all that fluff.

    It seems to be cockerel, with the pink comb and waddles.

    Here it is again but compared to pullets. The two pullets are in the front and unknown in the back.

    It’s comb is bigger which makes me think it’s a boy but it’s so small.

    I know I need to get rid of chicks. I’m trying to decide who to keep and if I want another rooster and if so which one. I have 5 silkie cross chicks in my bathroom that are 5 weeks . Ugh I wished I could keep them all. I really like these Orpingtons. They are all friendly. For some reason all my silkie chicks shake their heads when I talk like my voice is irritating but my orps don’t .
