Please help, Hens or Roos?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello!

I am new to the forum, and new to raising chickens, well i had some chickens growing up..

 

anyway,

 

I bought 5 chicks at a day old, 2 blue maran, 2 black maran, and one Ameraucana.

they are now 7 weeks ish....

My guess is, and maybe because its what we were shooting for...

 the black marans, and the ameraucana are hens

the bigger blue is a hen, and the other the roo

i find it hard to believe, that i would hit the straight run lotto...

 

 

i think he is the roo..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

i think this is the blue hen

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks in advance for the input!

 

Scott

Both blues appear to be cockerels

Your Ameraucana is actually an Easter Egger (commonly misrepresented as Ameraucana)  - can you get a clear photo of it's comb?

The blacks, for now, look to be pullets.
