Hey everyone! I'm new to this group and am so thankful to have found it. Anyways this spring I bought some Lavender Orpington chicks to add to my small backyard flock. These guys are 12 weeks old but I'm having trouble with figuring out gender. Below is Penny... is Penny a Perry lol?

I have another Orpington similar to this one except he/she has bigger waddles. Let me know what you guys think. And thanks in advance.

Penny is a pullet.

Post pics of the other one and we can judge that one as well.

Here's the rest of the lavender gang. The first 2 pictures are of Ruby or maybe Rudy. The 3rd picture is Stella ( I know for sure she's a pullet) The last is a picture of them together with Gerry our EE Roo. :) Any input on genders here would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, but what about the red comb and larger waddle?
In my experiences with lavender Orpingtons the pullets sometimes have more comb and wattle development. One of mine looked exactly like the first one, and I swore it was a roo, but it wasn't. I have since seen more pullets from other owners with the same development, so it must be a trait in the variety.

Oh, well thanks for that information, my lavenders have small combs so i just figured bigger combs and wattles meant roo :gig sorry!
