    Just for fun, I have 3 chicks, a jubilee orpington, olive egger and lavender orpington that I would like your best guess at. They are all 3 weeks old.

    No one is looking like an obvious cockerel yet, I would post again in another 2 weeks to confirm.

    They all look like pullets to me. Nice birds! I've been wanting Lavender Orpingtons for a couple years. I can't get them where I'm at and I don't want to order them online.

    Thank you for replying. I am suspicious that the OE and lavender are going to end up being cockerels due to their behavior, their combs already turning reddish and they go at each other already. This is my first time owning chickens so I could obviously be WAYYYY off lol. But I am having fun on this site researching. If they do end up being roosters, the lady I got them from will switch me out for new chicks and I will try again haha.
