    Lastly, sex them if you can, but I'm wondering color - the last ones are Black BLRWs, right?
    The others, the first sets, - a splash and a light blue or two splash?

    As far as the color on the Dots, it looks like the first set is 2 splash, but it's hard to totally tell by the angle of the chicks. The last 2 look like blacks, but sometimes the "blue" is hard to tell until they get older. I'd wait and see in a few weeks. Cute little buggers [​IMG]

    As far as your Marans the first 3 are pullets and the last is a roo. Nice start for a flock [​IMG]

    Am 1 - male
    Am 2 - likely female
    Am 3 - female
    Am 4 - male
    Am 5 - male
    Am 6 - likely male
    Am 7 - female

    You have blue, black, AND splash laced Wyandottes there.

    The Marans. . . hard to say. . . I'd pin em all female for now.

    Thank you! I was pretty sure the BLRWs had a splash, a blue and 2 blacks -
