    Hello All,

    I am fairly new to the chicken world and this was my first time hatching my own babies. I "think" I have three little girls and one roo, but I would like a second opinion... They will be 8 weeks old this Sunday.

    Chick #1 Lavender Ameraucana

    Chick #2 French Blue Copper Maran (roo suspect)

    Chick #3 Silver laced Wyandotte

    Chick #4 Dominique

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!! :)

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I think you have nailed all of the breeds and genders with the possible exception of the Blue Copper Marans. I think it is a pullet as well, but you can post these on our What Breed and Gender is This? link that Yorkshire coop gave you for further verification. It will make it easier to sex your BCM if you can post a full body profile showing the tail as well as the head. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. I hope I am right and your BCM turns out to be a pullet as well. Good luck.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Gorgeous flock! I think I see a couple roos in there, but I am no expert on the breeds I don't keep. :)

    Definitely post in our What Breed and Gender section for more help. Enjoy your lovelies and welcome to our flock!

    Chick #2 is definitely a rooster, and I'm thinking #3 is a rooster, too.
