    Here are the buffs (roo on the left). They are the hardest for me to tell apart at a glance. I won't be keeping my buff roo. [​IMG]

    Here are my light darlings (roo on the right). Sweetest birds ever.

    And finally the darks (Thor the roo, alone and on the left). They've been the slowest to grow and feather out; all except for their foot feathers. They defnitely got the foot feather thingie happening.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures, your babies are so cute. They also helped me identify some of mine to be sure.

    Oooh! I just got my first two Brahmas (one dark Roo and one light Pullet) and loved seeing what they will look like in six more weeks.

    I don't suppose you have pictures of them at under a week old? I'd like to see them if you do because I'm not sure which of my chicks are the Brahmas.

    Chirpy,
    I don't know whether these pics will help or not. According to my camera date, they were 10 days old when the following pics were taken.

    My dark roo. The orange coloring on his face is Ideal's mark for a roo.
    [​IMG]

    Here you see the dark roo again, with one of my dark girls in the food dish behind him. Also, somebody's butt? [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Here is a group pic. From top to bottom: My dark roo again, two of my light girls, and a dark girl. I think I got that all straight. [​IMG]
