    Purchased 5 4-wk old pullets that should now be 16 weeks old tomorrow. The breeds I purchased are: Buff Orpington, Silver Leghorn, Russian Orloff, Blue Wyndotte, and Silver Wyandotte. The BO recently grew saddle feathers and 2 sickle feathers so obviously a cockerel. Are there any other cockerels here and which picture is which breed?

    Azure (think pullet) and think Blue Wyandotte. Correct?


    [​IMG]
    Tinker Bell (the one in front) .. think pullet and Silver Leghorn. Correct?

    [​IMG]
    Buttercup (cockerel) and Buff Orpington. :(

    [​IMG]
    Daisy (think pullet) and Russian Orloff? Is that right?

    [​IMG]
    Taylor (think pullet) and Silver Wyandotte. Is that correct?

    #1. Blue Wyandotte pullet
    #2. Silver Leghorn pullet
    #3. Buff Orp cockerel
    #4. Pullet, but sure doesn't look like an Orloff to me.(I've never had one before, so maybe that's why) She almost reminds me of a Buckeye from the back, though a picture of the face and comb would be a help.
    #5. Silver Laced Wyandotte pullet

    After googling Russian Orloff and looking at images I don't think I have one even though that is what my receipt says. Will try to get a picture of her face and comb soon. Thanks.

    Blue Wyandotte, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Silver Leghorn are pullets. Buff Orpington is a cockerel. I agree the red pullet looks like a Buckeye "need a face pic to confirm", she's definintly not a Russian Orloff. I raise both Buckeyes and Spangled Russian Orloffs.

    You're right on all the breeds except the Orloff; she is either a Production Red (which will have a single comb) or possibly a Buckeye (those show a pea comb). I can't see see her comb from this angle. Everybody's female except the Buff Orp.
