    I may be a BIT prejudiced but I think these are two gorgeous Lavender Orpingtons.

    Both about 10 months old, the Roo is Sinbad and the Hen is Chica.

    I have two other hens but they aren't as big and pretty as Chica.

    I have several of their eggs in the incubator that go into lockdown tonight. Also have some eggs from other hens (White Leghorn and Rhode Island Reds) that were fertilized by Sinbad so I will be interested in seeing what they all end up looking like!

    You have very pretty birds! They reminded me of my sweet Lavendula that I had to euthanize about a month ago. The poor girl had a knee injury that was not fixable. Would you consider selling some fertile eggs in the spring? Your birds made my day!

    They are beautiful!! I do have a quick question if you don't mind...I have 5 lavender orpingtons that are about 3.5 months old (will be 14 weeks on Monday). What age could you really start to tell whether they were pullets or cockerels? I think I have 1 cockerel for sure, but I change my mind daily on the other 4.
