    Our chicks are 6 weeks old today, and courtesy of a beautiful sunny afternoon, got there first taste of outside, so I took the opportunity to snap a few shots. We have 3 Birchen Marans and 3 Coronation Sussex, and one of the Marans is a roo for sure as he has been practicing his crow for the past 2 mornings (is this young to be crowing?). I also suspect quite a few, if not all the others are roos as well, but as they are still young wanted to get an experts view - anyone hazard a guess with some of these?

    Many thanks!

    Here is a pic of all of them together:

    I'm not good w/ the young "big combed" breeds, but they sure look like boys to me too.
