    I had two chickens hatch on July 26 of this year. That would make them almost 4 months old. They are Blue/Black/Splash Orpingtons. I have a blue one that is definatly a roo. I also got a splash one that I can not decide the sex. It has pointed head feathers but the comb and waddles are nothing like the blue roo.

    This is the blue roo to compare....

    First one is definitely a roo - OF course you already know this [​IMG]

    Second one is a pullet. I'm pretty sure.. Though not positive..

    I hope so!!! I need a pullet! I had these to hatch and then a few weeks later I had 3 more hatch. That gives me five. These were the first two that hatched. The next three that hatched are two roos and a pullet. I was really hoping that I did not end up with four roos and only one pullet. If this splash turns out to be a pullet then I will at least have two pullets and three roos.
