    Sorry again Sara..that is a boy. The blues always trick me until those saddles come in. And the red is a dead giveaway on roosters.

    On the flip side, he looks like he will be gorgeous.

    I, too, had been fooled that most of my flock Blue Orps were girls, but NO, they were all boys! GRRRRR! So I got them all butchered and only have two Orps out of the whole lot of 19 birds I purchased straight run chicks.

    He sure is a lovely boy!

    Who knows what I'll do now. I like blue, maybe I'll breed him to a black rumpless girl and see if I can get some blue pullets. [​IMG] It is good I thought it was a pullet or I might not have went out and bought more araucanas. So it all turned out good.
