    Still no closer to knowing what we have, breed or gender wise.
    Any ideas? ;)
    They are now 3 weeks old and their feathers are coming along nicely :)

    They look so weird at this age, don't they? :lau - I have 11 that are 3 1/2 weeks. They all look like they have bad bed head.

    I am not sure what they are.. Sorry.. They are cute. Bumping so someone else can help you out.

    #1, at this stage anyway, looks alot like a Black Copper Marans, but I am certainly no expert.

    Here are some head shots.
    Well these are the only suitable ones I could get before they would jump up and perch on my hand or camera haha :D[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Hope these are from a better angle

    #2 looks like one of the groups I have. I asked at TSC today when I was getting more Chick Starter and they told me that mine are Golden Commits and Rhode Island Reds. If anyone agrees please let me know, or dissagrees for that matter. The bigger chicks were born March 1st and the smaller ones March 6th. I'm thinking that the big one is either an early bloomer or she's actually a he. Don't know yet because this is my first go around with chickens. But I do know they were born and bought the same time and they all looked like they were following the same stages until Nugget, started changing quicker and right before my eyes.
