    Any guesses on sex/coloring? These are my first BLRWs. :)

    the 2 middle ones look like roosters and the 1st and 4th look like females. Can you get a closer picture of the combs though?

    The first looks like the "black" version of the BLR-but the picture is a little dark, the others are defintely splashes. I see the second bird has a single comb and may be getting waddles already(keep any eye, that might be a boy). The others, so far, look like girls. Enjoy them!

    2-4 are most likely splash. I agree that 2 and 3 look like cockerels and 1 and 4 look like pullets. But, it's still hard to say. I feel really confident in saying 2 and 3 are cockerels.

    Yup I stick with what I said but the one chick with the single comb could depend because jusdging from the fact that its not supposed to have onetheres nothing to compare it with

    Here are the 2 I am keeping at just over a month old, hoping they are both pullets!

    Nothing screams "rooster". Should be girls.
