    Here is took some pictures of the flock coop and the chicks. Any guesses on the gender or color of the chicks I will tell you my guess on color at the top. These chicks are blue and black copper marans from peachick. They are from Will Marrow's stock and Wade Jeane lines.

    chick 1 dark blue?

    It looks like you have the colors correct. Number 4 looks like it might be dark blue [​IMG]

    thanks I think that would leave me with 4 or 5 blues ! most of these are from a splash rooster over black hens and a few are from the splash rooster and a blue hen.

    Do you think chick 5 is a girl because she is feathering faster or a boy because he has that little tail?
