    hello, so was able to take back one of my roosters and exchange it for a new hen, im hopping that i actually got a hen and not another roo. The breeder thought they were right around 17-18 weeks also any help on what color she is would be great. Thanks

    It would help if you had a full body shot from the side of her just standing there. [​IMG]

    Orpingtons have pink legs. I think you have a blue jersey giant, however it doesn't look very old. [​IMG]

    My blue orps have black legs. And I KNOW they are orps [​IMG] They are like black orps: They are born with white feet and black legs, and gradually the feet turn black but the toenails are still white. Not the same as Buff Orps at all. It's Buff Orps with the pink legs, not Blue, black, splash or lavender. Interestingly enough, buff orps aren't even related to the black types.

    Looks like you got a pretty little Orp pullet there.

    PS - and she looks like she's been in an overcrowded pen. Tail feathers gone, wing feathers trimmed at the ends to hide raggedy feathers, and overall rough. She'll pretty up fairly quickly though.

    Quote:Oh, my bad, didn't know that. The tail feathers had gotten me too, that's why I thought she was younger. I guess she would be around 17 weeks if she had a tail. [​IMG]
