OK here they are. I know it is to early to tell boy or girl but premature guesses would be appreciated.

Barred Rock, is kinda got some comb action going on, Boy?

Beautiful! That first blue orp at first to me looked like a splash...but it looks like its wing feathers are coming in all one even color....maybe a Lavender aka Self Blue bird.
Good Luck with them!

The BR looks like a girl to me from the coloring and the legs. The first Orp looks like a splash, but could be very, very light blue, and a boy, too, from the comb. I've never had a blue that light, though. I think we'll need pics a bit further away to really tell better in a couple of weeks. Too early to tell on the Ameraucanas. Finally, you got you some nice Orps! Congrats!

I ended up with four Barred Rock girls from my last hatch (not all roosters, contrary to what people think, LOL). Their names are Maddie, Hannah, Holly and Bess. I like Alma for a name. I really do think that's a girl. Definite girl coloring right down to her toes.

There was a nun in a movie and her name was Alma so I thought since she is black and white what could be more appropriate. I have never forgotten that nun, isn't it strange the things we remember.

It is strange the things we remember, that's true. It's why my Nelda has her name, a name of one of my younger sister's friends' older sisters. Did I say that right, LOL? Anyway, it stuck in my brain for all these years. Her name was Nelda Knight, hence my Nelda.
