    both look like hens to me. our lavender orpingtons are proving very hard to sex. based on 2nd day vent and feather sexing we figured 6 hens and 2 roos and 12 weeks later it looks more like 2 hens and 6 roos! we are still holding out hope that some of the ones with large red combs are hens, only two have dark red combs and wattles. the other orpingtons we have were also hard to sex based on comb, started out with slight combs and then they got huge and red. no crowing yet from anyone. it's kind of nerve wracking because I don't want to push it with the neighbors in terms of early morning crowing.
