    I bought 6, what was meant to be Orpington eggs from ebay earlier in the year. Only 2 hatched and then one disappeared one day never to be seen again!
    This is the only chick left and we called it the dinosaur chick as it took so long to get it's feathers.
    Now it seems to look quite like an Orp, what do you think??
    I having a feeling it is a Roo but thought I would ask you guys!

    You didn't say how old it is, but I don't see any pointy saddle or hackle feathers. I think its a Marjory [​IMG]

    I'm going to go against the grain here and say late blooming roo.

    But I'll continue to hope it's a pullet!

    Quote:Noooooo [​IMG] I actually thought it was a Roo but was hoping i was proved wrong, so either way it doesn't really matter, although a pullet is preferred!

    I've been wrong before(once, a long time ago, and I don't like to talk about it [​IMG] ), and everyone else is saying it's a girl, so think positive thoughts!!
