    My 2 chicks are about 4 weeks old. Not sure of the breed but thinking they are Marans. Not sure if they're boys or girls but here's a couple of photos, maybe you guys can figure it out!
    Thanks!

    A bit young yet, but I believe the first is a rooster.

    I'm having the same thought. Will have to start thinking up a new name, haven't heard of any boys called Maisy!

    Look like BCM to me, and yes, that is a boy in the first photo.
    Marans telecast very early.
    Maurice makes a good male name for a Marans.

    Sorry but what's BCM stand for? Love the name Maurice, I was thinking Hansel as his sisters name is Gretel!

    Yep, that's a boy and hopefully the other will continue to look like a pullet.
