    This is Holly...I was told she was a BLRW....does she really look like one to you? Is she blue or splash?

    This is Ellie...she is a lemon cuckoo orpington...we are wondering if she could be a he. She doesn't act like a male...any thoughts?

    I think Holly is a cockeral, and that's a splash laced red. That's a lot of red in the comb and those legs are very think.
    Ellie looks like a pullet but that is a lot of comb for eight weeks. You'll just have to keep an eye on them.
