    Quote:I have zero experience with wheatens, and the last pic is pretty blurred on my monitor, but does not look female to me. Hopefully I'm wrong and those more experienced will say so. [​IMG] [[ETA: I assumed it was the one you thought to be a female wheaten.]

    Probably still too early to tell for the other three..6 weeks old here, and a Marans girl in the back wondering why I've interrupted her dust bath. I'm still keeping them separated from the rest of the flock.

    Quote:I don't go much by behavior on chicks that age. It's too soon to tell, but suspect Onyx to be a roo just based on the wider, darker comb; but again, too soon for me to tell.

    Its just one of those freaky eggs that shows up every once in a while. Not a regular thing, but its always fun to find them.
