    I thought I had these few birds figured out, but now I'm second-guessing myself again (first-timer!). I have 8-9week old Orpingtons (mixed colors, not buffs). Any guesses? Almost all of them have a touch of comb/wattle action, but they vary so much in color and size.

    And my 4week old Easter egger's peacomb is so confusing. Any input?

    I tried getting better pictures of my Jubilee chick. Are those pointy saddle feathers or am I being paranoid? I really hope she's a pullet!
