    So far that baby looks female, but Orps are notorious for being late developers, and those wattles make me a teeny bit nervous. So keep an eye on him/her!

    My guess is pullet, based off of overall appearance and comb size.

    I'm going to say pullet, as her body type (fluffy and rounded) is typical of a pullet Orpington. And the comb isn't very red/developed, either.
