    My mom agreed to take her coworkers 2 "pullets" [​IMG] Well the buff Orpington is obviously a cockerel and the blue Andalusian is in question. The Buff Orpington is obviously young so I am sure he is a cockerel. The Blue Andalusian on the other hand is questionable. I have no expirience with the breed so I don't know it's age. It has small spurs coming through and the comb is kind of pale so I don't know what to think.
    I need some help. How old do you guys think the Orp is and do you think the Andalusian is a pullet or a cockerel?

    Really? You think he is 5-6 months? Honestly I was guessing around 10 weeks [​IMG] He is 3xs smaller than my 4 month old Splash Orp cockerel! He is even smaller than the andalusian pullet.

    Is your splash Orp breeder stock? B/c hatchery stock is way way WAAAAYYYYY smaller. ;) I agree, cockerel and pullet, both about 5 months old. :)

    He could be about 3 months since looking at the pics again, I'm not seeing saddle feathers yet.
