    Okay so I hatched some of my eggs from my black Ameruacanas Hen & White Silkie Roo and I got the sweetest black chicks..... The only problem? I can not for the life of me tell them apart yet alone even know how to begin to figure out who is a girl and who is a boy!!! They have black combs ... black skin... well black everything!!! I have 2 that are 6-7 weeks old and 4 that are 3-4 weeks old. Can anybody help me ID these guys & gals .....

    I'm not even sure that the 4 pictures of the younger ones are actually all 4 of the birds [​IMG] Hoping I got it right.....

    I tried to mark them with nail polish to tell them apart but I think they somehow managed to rub it off!!! So if I can match the bird to the pix it will be a MIRACLE!!!!

    Anybody want to guess???

    Thanks for any and all help!!!! I am hopeless!!!
