    Ok these chicks are about 7 weeks. It was a Blue copper marans rooster over a pure white easter egger. What do you guys think they are. Im leaning toward roo's. The first 2 pictures are the same bird. The last pic is another one that came out black with a brown front and black legs. Thinking maybe he will be an olive egger roo??

    Can we have a full body of the second one? Sometimes it is the color rather than comb that determines sex.

    I'm thinking that #1 is a male. #2 looks female, though a full body shot would help.

    This is a third bird from the same litter. This one I know is a hen. Figured I would put this one in for comparison

    The first two are both cockerels, the last bird is a pullet.
