    Heres the crosses possible:
    Black Copper Marans Roo, Wheaten Marans Roo, Blue Ameraucana Roo, Welsummer Roo over the following hens:
    Cuckoo Marans, Deleware, Welsummer, Wheaten Marans, Black, Blue and Wheaten Ameraucanas.
    these guys are roughly 6 weeks...and I am starting to think I see a roo....do you?
    Heres the pics I could snap today....:

    the last pic is a week ago...
    theres 5 total...what do you think and why...I am fairly clueless and the more I read the more confused I am getting.
    Oh and extra points if you can tell me what color eggs. Our breeder guessed and I have it written down somewhere I can check that too...just asking for fun.
     

  2. Black and white barred: BC marans over cuckoo marans?

    Top right, first pic: Welsummer over Ameraucana?

    Small black chick: Black ameraucana over blue?

    Two that look to have a lot of ameraucana in them.

    Honestly though, very hard to tell from those pics. I can't wait to see pics of them in another month; a lot of them will look very different.

    so I was thinking the one that is black/copper the top right first pic may be a roo? I dunno...I have really been getting a dude vibe from that one. "her" name is Hettie...but I am thinking maybe Henry is more in order? How do I tell?
     
  4. Does she have wattles starting? If you can get a real good face shot (especially the comb) we may be able to tell. It's hard though, since we don't know exactly what breed she is.
