    It is hard to tell at this age, but Orpingtons mature pretty fast so I'm with you, I think both are pullets. : )

    Realistically they are to young to determine if they are males or females. You need to wait until around 4 months of age. Observe the trouble makers that tend to pick on the others for no reason at all and they are typically the roosters. Also at 4 months, neck and tail feathers that are getting longer than the other chicks is also is a good indication it is a rooster. Continual observation is a key factor in determining the sex of your birds until they crow. Hi Hi :)
