    Pullets or Roos?

    Okay, it’s week 7! I am hoping my assessments are correct and most of these are pullets! These are all mixed birds except for the Ameraucanas and the Mauve Orpington. They are Cochin mixes (mom was the Cochin) crossed with 3-4 fathers that were Marans, Isbars or Langshans. Any guesses on...

    What gender are these wheaten marans?

    Is it possible to find out if there is any pullet among these? I thought the lighter one (first pic) might be, but I am not so sure. Or is it too early? They are 5 weeks old now. Thanks a lot!

    Hey Everyone! I first want to start this off by saying that I was 100% inspired by @TheAlrightyGina and her Silkie Sexing Project. I saw it and thought it was the best idea ever. So here we are! Now, I am no where near as organized as Gina so the only thing I can and will do for this project is...

    [WA state] Looking for a new home for a 6wk old Black Copper Marans

    I've had hens before, but it's my first time raising chicks, and I was so terrified of getting something wrong (failure to thrive, roosters, etc.) that I over-committed on chicks. Well, as it turns out, all of my chicks have been ridiculously healthy and pullets - so I now need to downsize my...
