Hello! Back in March I received three 6 week old pullets, including a lavender orpington. They are are now about 22 weeks old, and two of the three are laying, except for the lavender orpington (named Violet). Now, I know it’s still early and that orpingtons can lay a bit later. However, I’m a bit stumped as to whether or not this pullet may be a cockerel. Comb and wattle are not very large or very red, but there are a few suspicious tail feathers. AND - Violet has taken to crowing at 5 a.m. Four or five times in a row and then not again until the next morning. But, Violet’s appearance does not scream rooster to me. And she (he?) hasn’t made any overtures towards the other hens. So - a cockerel or just a weird pullet? Can anyone take a look at some photos I took and take a shot at this one? Thanks in advance!
