    This is Hattie. 3 week old Splash Orpington chick. She is the tiniest chick still. I know it's early, but any thoughts so far on boy or girl? My opinion is Hattie is Hattie... she just looks little and delicate...but, I could be wrong. LOL

    My orpington pullets were getting feathers down their back and tail feathers by about 2 weeks. My cockerels didn't feather nearly as fast. So I would say Harold. Sorry.
