    Someone else on BYC started a thread of 8 Week chicks. (Sorry - Can't remember the name). I thought it was a brilliant idea. As a newbie myself I am always wondering what my chicks will look like in the coming weeks. And I had a hard time finding pictures in a central location. So thought I would start several threads bringing us up to 8 weeks.

    Please add your own pics of your chicks at these ages. And please put in breed so all us newbies can get an idea of what our babies will look like!

    Here are mine at 6 weeks.

    Don't know enough to challenge or confirm your ideas on sex but it's sure great to see the birds. We have two BSLs that are scratching at 9-weeks.

    I think your assessments are mostly correct. I suspect roo but with the larger comb vs the shape of the tail the Splash Orp could go either way.

    lol. I think the "tail" you are seeing on the splash is actually part of the barred rock behind "him". The splash still has almost no tail!
