    I have wanted jubilee orps for three years. I finally found two locally to buy!!! I am praying each night that these end up being a pair. The darker one feathered out quicker. So by reading this thread, I am hoping that the whiter one is a boy and the darker one is a girl. Any thoughts? They are five or six weeks old. [​IMG]

    If I were to guess right now, I would say you had a pair. They look like Heirloom lines?

    Here is another view of the pullet... He first shot was not great. I am apparently pretty bad at taking chicken photographs.

    Why do some jubilee orp juveniles have barring/penciling type markings and some don't? I have birds from different sources and have noticed some variance. I'm also seeing some that mature to a gorgeous mahogany color and others are more reddish. ???

    I've noticed this as well. I have three roos all from Greenfire and all three a different in their coloring. Only one is the deep mahogany. One is more white. One is stunningly red. All three gorgeous though.
