I am brand new to BYC. Have had hens for two years now. This year, decided to add a few as the old girls were dramatically slowing down on egg production. I purchased a Lavendar Orpington and a black Orpington. My Black Orpington is a pullet, but my Lavendar Orpington--I am unsure the gender. Any guesses as this is a breed new to me? This bird is much larger than my other girls who are full grown and he/she is only about 6 months old. I think I heard a crow this morning, but not very loud.
