    I have three BLRW that hatched out 5 weeks ago. I'm hoping that at least one of them is a hen.....
    Here are pics. BTW- I have no idea what the dark one is. It was in the BLRW hatch, but what is the coloring?

    Splash?

    I can't get her to stay still long enough for a good pic. I'll have to have my son hold them when we get home tomorrow....

    OOOOO Preeety! I just got some silver laced wyandottes a bit ago... but the pullet fairy had frowned on me and I ended up with one pullet and the rest cockerels. Eh well... at about 6-7 weeks I found it quite obvious which were which... here is a pic of my boy Hubert and my girl Percephone at 6 weeks (give or take). In reference to your dark one, looks like maybe a red laced? Just didn't get the blue trim your others got?

    first one is a splash pullet, second one (on the left in the pic) is a roo (splash or blue), and the dark one is a "black" blue laced red, photo not good enough to determine gender, at that age ones with bigger wattles (as the one in the second photo) are boys.

    ETA: this is a great website about the BLRW, and the 3 color variations [​IMG]

    I'm thinking pullet. I was hoping that at least one or two of these would be hens so that I can keep them. I was SO sad. Out of the 12 that I had shipped, 4 hatched. The one that had the most potential as a great blue lace died from a resp infection ( I think). I had a feeling that one was a hen too.

    Here's a better picture of #2:
    I think she's a he too:

    They're not going to be bred, so color and such doesn't really matter to me other than I like pretty birds & I wouldn't mind a few more regular size eggs.

    All but #2 look like girls! I have a splash and A black blue laced red ... she carries the blue gene but looks like a Golden laced wyandotte!
