    I got Junior from Cyn, he is definitely a HE. I hatched this Black Chick from my other Flock and I am now thinking it is a Boy. They are about the same age.

    I think they are about 6 months old.

    The 2 Splashes and Blue I hatched from eggs from Cyn, they are Suede Babies. I am sure the Splashes are Girls. not sure about the Blue.
    The Splashes and Blue are about 4 months old.

    Black Orp Roo/Hen ????




    Shows legs, they are not real thick:


    Splash 1


    Splash 2

    I'd say they are all pullets!

    I am going to guess:

    Black - cockerel

    Splash - unsure - cannot see saddle feather well

    Blue - pullet

    1) I agree the stance, wattles, comb, neck feathers, and curved tail say boy.
    2) The face, and body make me think girl, however the tail looks like it may have a curl at the end, and I can't tell if the neck feathers are pointed, but it doesn't look like you have any pointy saddle feathers there.
    3) Looks like a girl, but doesn't have much of a tail to go on, so I am just going on face, neck/saddle feathers, and body.

    Good luck, and pretty chicks.

    I'd say the Black is a cockerel, I see a roo-like tail and saddle feathers even if the wattle is a bit on the small side.

    The white/splash one looks pretty feminine to me, so I'd say pullet.

    The blue also looks pretty girly.

    Top black one has rooster feathering all over it.

    The other I want to say pullets.

    I think the black is a boy. The rest girls. They are just gorgeuos by the way. My kids told me they really want some blue chickens. So I think that is added to our list for the spring [​IMG] I think the blue color is just stunning!

    I was 99% sure that the Black was another cockerel. I am pretty sure the 2 splashes and Blue are girls. Just needed confirmation.

    I agree, black is a cockerel and the others look like pullets.

    i wanted to let you know that the splashes are the same bird, I matched the feathering and the black spot on the left leg.
