    OK Here are 4 more chicks. Same deal from previous post;

    I hatched out some eggs 3 weeks ago. I got the eggs from two sources. One source was Ebay, the seller said they were naked neck X Marans. The other was a local source, with Americauna/EE roosters and EE or barred rock hens.

    Tell me your guesses as to what sex and which eggs they were hatched from. I will tell you the ones I am pretty sure hatched from which egg.
    3 Weeks old today;

    Chick #4 roo? This one had a classic white dot on it's head and was black, now showing some 'barring?"

    Chick #5 Pullet (hope?). This one is the only one with feathered legs. The Ebay seller said she has one white marans with feathered legs. So, maybe ?

    Chick #6 no idea if it is a pullet or roo. I couldn't get it to stand up.

    Chick #7. All black with really black legs. I am almost positive this came from one of the local eggs with the EE roo X with barred rock. Would that cross make this?
    This is the smallest and the slowest to feather out. No idea if it is a roo or pullet.

    I think chick #4 is a rooster, I'm not sure about #5, and I think #6 and #7 are pullets, but I could be incorrect.

    And, I'm not 100% sure that it is a cockerel (just the most likely one).
