    I recently bought 4 BLRW chicks from a local poultry farm. They will be 2 weeks old this Sunday. He gave me two darker chicks and 2 lighter chicks and I am curious as to what color they will be as I know they can be blue laced, splash, or black laced. I am hoping for blue laced and splash which is what I think they are. I took pictures of a dark chick and light chick and will post below in comments. I will also try to post a picture of some of his BLRW stock. I want to know anyone else's opinions on what colors you think they will be. Thanks in advance!

    Here are two of his BLRW, but he also has a splash hen and a black laced as well. The one's pictured are the color that I want, or splash

    What are the ways you can sex them? I read somewhere the roosters will have solid colors on their back feathers instead of the lacing. I don't like to go by comb size and color alone because I have read others posts on here where people say its a rooster and turns out to be a hen.
