Are they black or dark blue???...
Chick 1 (first to hatch)...
Chick 2 (second to hatch)...
Oh my! They are precious! They are very dark blue. Congrats!
Watch the toe on the first one. See the tip? It can break easily and be an odd shaped toe. Keep a very close eye on it.
They are beautiful thanks for posting this I have some very dark blue Blue copper marans and only 1 or 2 blacks !
Awwwww! So sweet! Congrats!
I am going to test my skills - I predict #2 is a pullet.

Well, here are more hints for you...Chick 2 is about 3/4 the size of chick 1. They are both very calm chicks, but Chick 1 will walk about when you are trying to take pictures. Chick 2 will squat and I have to make her stand so I can get a pic of her feet. Neither one of them are mean....I am voting that they are both pullets! (may be just wishful thinking!! )
I have found a very constant rule - the first chick to hatch is always a roo. Seriously. Never failed yet. LOL
Quote:Ah man...that stinks...I can't keep roos and I'd hate to re-home my first baby!
It won't sit still long enough for me to check it's wings and I didn't want to hurt it. We'll see if he crows!
Quote:Yes! I have found that too!
What precious babies.
Are more coming?
