    Did she keep other breeds? Did she keep the Orpingtons in a separate pen? If she had a bunch of different breeds all together in the same flock, than no guarantees of parentage can be made.

    This looks a lot like my Blue Orpington. The only thing is, my blues have blue feet to match the feathers. Here's a pic, in case it helps. I'm sure someone else on here can tell you exactly what sort of chicken this is. :)

    Ok that makes sense. I hope it's a blue Orpington pullet!

    This looks a lot like my Blue Orpington girls. The only difference is, my girls have blue feet to match their feathers? Here's some pics:

    Oh boy that's a strong point. I think I'll see if I can get ahold of her. This might be a cross by accident. But you think a Roo?

    I'm not going to say it's a roo for sure. When they are younger than 6 weeks it's really just a guessing game. Most cockerels are pretty obvious by 8 weeks.

    Wow this can get confusing. Lol

    I know she had several types of Orpingtons and Cochins and also Euskal Oiloas. So maybe a have some weird cross. I didn't pick the 5 birds up myself. But was told Orpingtons. I think there's several in here and she just said Ya They're all Orpingtons

    Would anyone mind if I post pics of the other three that I have? I bought 5 so called Orpingtons and showed you two.

    That barred Rock is definitely a cockerel. They are one breed that you can sex by coloration. The males have wider white bars and narrow black bars.
