    These are my Lavender Orpington babies. They are 12 weeks old today. So what do you think, pullets or cockerels?[​IMG][​IMG] They don't hold still very well. My roo "Rowdy" 16 weeks.[​IMG] He's the only one crowing so far!

    I'm new to this, but I love reading these threads. So I'll take a guess. The three in the foreground in the first photo all look like roos to me, but the 4th in the background looks like a pullet.

    I love the lavender color![​IMG]
