    At first I thought I had 4 females, than I thought I had 2 females and 2 males and now I think I have 2 males, 1 female and one undecided.... Unfortunately, the only one whose eyes aren't turning orangish is the supposed female.

    I don't know anything about this breed but if you go by the combs at 5 weeks I think you have one pullet and the rest roos!!

    I'm hoping that the last chick could still be a female since it's comb isn't as large or red. I would say just a few days ago, it looked like the female.

    Your "?" chick I think is a roo, but less dominant than the other two. 3 roos and 1 pullet.

    As per your request I wandered over from the Marans thread. I think based on what your pullet's comb looks like, that the one you are unsure about is a cockerel

    I think I got all your girls. I hatched 5 about the same time you did, and theres not a comb on a single one.
