Well, it's time to face the music! Here are some pics of my 12-week-old Blue/Black Orp and 15-week-old Barred Rock babies. I'd love to hear some opinions on gender. . . This is 2 pics of the Barred Rock: Edited to add: both pics are of the same BR. In the 1st pic, the little guy in the background is a Cuckoo Marans. Here are a couple of one of the Black Orps: And now a couple of the Blue Orp: On this Black Orp I would also like some feedback on the white feathering on this one's chest. Is this a mottled or is it just poor coloring?
