In the Brooder
- Oct 4, 2011
I had a brain fart on the age. They were 2.5 weeks when I got them two Saturdays ago so about 4.5 weeks old. This pics were from this morning.
At what age do imported Orpingtons usually start laying or crowing? I have 3 imported Chocolate Orpingtons that are 5 months old and I still don't know if they are boys or girls. Well I know one is a girl but, I am really confused about the other two.
Hi Michelle -
Do you have pics of the two you are unsure of. We can help determine,
They will typically lay about 6 - 7 mths.
I need to take some more updated pics. If they were boys shouldn't they be crowing by now? Two of them have larger combs and they have more red in them. I am assuming they must be girls since they are already 5 months and no one has started crowing. I will try to get some pics up this afternoon.
here are my english blue orpingtons. any thought on sex? they are about 3wks old i think. would these be considered black or blue?
All Three together. Notice how much bigger Goliath is than the other two. Thats where he/she got its name. I think he is a roo just because how prominant his comb is already and how large his is. They are from the same hatching.
I was hoping for a trio. The parents were absolutely gorgeous. His breeding trio had one blue hen and one black hen with a black roo. They are going to make my other birds feel tiny when they get all grown up. So if I breed black on black, whats the chances of offspring color?
