    I am fairly sure I have the breed down now. Originally I was just going to have quail, but then I saw a photo of a silkie, fell in love and this is the result...

    Yes, as far as I know she (I'm hoping) is a gold laced orpington, the guy I got my silkie eggs from (Cecil was the only one of the 6 eggs to hatch) said their female gold laced orpington liked to hop the fence and lay with the silkies [​IMG]

    Still no silkies, although I am incubating *cough* a few eggs right now, and hopefully one is a silkie.

    ANYWAY, I am completely in love with this chicken, so could you let me know if you think she is a girl or a boy?

    She is about 3 months old now and that photo was taken a few days ago.

    Must be a girl, right?

    I'm pretty sure "she" is a pullet, though a close-up of the tail area would help be sure of this. And yes, I think she is a Golden Laced Orpington.
