    I just hatched two black orpingtons. One of them has yellow beak and feet and one has black beak and feet. Is one a male and one a female? Or just coincidence?

    Congrats on new chicks. Orps are not a breed that color can be used to tell sex. You could have one Blue and one black but I don't think legs should be yellow on either one. [​IMG]

    From 1-2 days you can age by looking at their wing feathers, or primaries and the primary coverts. This only works for standard breeds I believe, but there are pictures on google.
