Are these blue or black?

    I got several Marans this week and a couple Wellies. I am almost positive one is a blue Roo, affectionately named Ghost by my two year old son. The others I am clueless as to color and genders. I'm pretty sure I haven't two blacks but again I am a terrible judge.

    This looks like it's either a dark blue or?? Arg.

    And one of my dobie Odin with Ghost. Haha



    Anyone have any ideas? I know that Enders are for sure until they crow but guessing is always fun!

    It's quite young to tell, but all look like pullets so far except the above two pictures.

    Well, this would be great because the above two are the same chick! Haha. [​IMG] I love guessing though. The woman who I bough them from said her particular chicks seem to show their colors early on like with the above chick. She said he is only 1-2 weeks and he is a monster!

    Any thoughts on color?

    If there were blues as well as blacks in the line, I think it's probably you may have some blues there. However, I can't tell you exactly because I had the same experience with my Ameraucanas. I thought I had more blues than I actually did. Some blues can also be very dark. A grey "blue" turned out black, a silvery yellow "splash" chick turned out blue.

    I agree with Wyandottes7's guesses.
