Is there any way to get an idea of the sex of 1-2 week old Blue or Black Orpingtons??
Not really. Even the girls are chunky with big legs most of the time. At about four weeks old, the males may be almost bald on their backs and tops of the wings because they feather much slower than the ladies.
Thanks, I am hoping to find some Orpington pullets in Buff,Black,Blue & Splash but no such luck and after a total loss with the 2 dozen eggs I bought I am in no hurry to try eggs again(well not total I did hatch 2 chicks but they were not Orpingtons as I was told)so I guess I will try chicks.
