    And I think this one is a black? I'm pretty sure a pullet, I'll try for a close up later.

    They look like dark blues. I think you have one of each sex.

    Here is another of my roosters, trying to figure out his final color. I think he is a blue, in this picture it's harder to tell than outside in person, but his lacing seems greyish in comparison to a pullet the same age who looks much more black. The lacing on his chest is coming in good so far, does the lacing line around each feather change with each molt? So far his lacing seems thick.

    I have two hens from them and a rooster. The rooster gets lots of compliments via forums and the hens for their type. However, the hens coloring isnt as dark as I would like and I always get a splash when they send me a straight run. I believe their roos are better colored than their hens.

    Five week update pics as requested, and please take a gender guess!!! I have another broody and am trying to decide if I want to track down some BLRW eggs for her. I really want a blue hen and if this is a roo (the other is a black) then I'm going shopping!

    Are these hackle feathers are saying roo? They are coming in very pointy and dark.

    Nice lacing, finally!

    It is hard to capture in a picture, but I noticed some more solid mahogany feathers coming in over the shoulders.

    The comb color is washed a little here but really it is not overly red. Less so then the wattles.
