I've hatched splash Orpington chicks from my own birds AND three other sources and every single one of them has been a cockerel. Every blasted one. This one had me fooled and other people as well, so it wasn't just me. This boy feathered out quickly, with a very long tail and female body shape, however, from the get-go, I noticed thick legs. That alone isn't always an indicator since the Orp girls are fairly hefty, but still....here he is, eight weeks old, naughty thing changing sexes on me, LOL. Sooo, anyone want a splash Orpington cockerel?
