    Hoping to get opinions on the sex of these birds. Pretty sure the silver laced Wyandotte is a roo if not she has a huge personality lol I was pretty sure the blue and lavender Orpington were pullets but want to check. I’m very on the fence about the black olive Egger. She’s bigger than the others but they were all born between beginning and middle of August so she may just be oldest? Thoughts? Pics 1-4 are silver laced Wyandotte. Pics 5-8 blue Orpington. Pics 9-12 black olive Egger. Then the last pics are lavender Orpington. All born beginning-middle of August.

    The Wyandotte looks to be your only cockerel.

    Hi y’all. I have a chance to rehome today so just want to get last minute opinions. Everyone still say cockerel for Wyandotte and pullet for black olive egged?
