    These chickens hatched sometime in September. I know these aren’t very good pics but I can get better ones soon. The grey one is a purebred lavender Orpington. The black one is a cross between an Ameruacana and a lavender Orpington. My guess is that the lavender Orpington is a cockerel and the black one is a pullet, but I want to know what you guy’s think.

    They are both pullets. The lavender is getting close to laying. They are 6 months old guys.

    I will snap a pic of the lavender in the morning. It would be great if they both ended up being pullets.
