    I'm pretty sure I've got 2 cockerels and a pullet. Please let me know what you think:

    By the combs I would say 2 roosters and a hen.

    I'd say two roosters and a pullet judging by the pics. You will love them, they are gorgeous chickens. [​IMG]

    Thanks, Chickndaddy & Jade! I'm extra excited about these, as they are hatched from Bev Davis' eggs! All the eggs were true 7-8's on the Marans Egg Colour scale, so I'm pretty darn excited about the future!

    Hey, those look familiar! [​IMG] You have two cockerels and a pullet there. It is good that the little girl is showing the copper already as it sometimes takes a while for it to pop up. I am anxious to see how they turn out!
