    Well, my pretty blue Orp chick is a BOY! A gorgeous, unusually light colored one, though. I think he's beautiful and of course, I'll have to sell him. Anyone like to own a Son of Suede? The other one, also a cockerel, is black and just as handsome. This one has a very nice posture and is very tame. Sorry about the grainy pics-bsmt lighting is awful!

    Henry, sure wish you could come get him. He's going to be a real handsome guy and probably very large like his dad.
    rosy, I know he's a boy because of several things-first, after breeding these for awhile, you just know after three or four weeks. Secondly, his comb is increasing in size quickly and his wattles are pink already, HUGE legs and feet, slow feathering on the sides of his neck and his back and a very roosterly upright stance and demeanor. Believe me, it's a boy. If this is a girl, I'd be shocked beyond belief, LOL.
