    Im guessing 6 and 4 are roos based on wings, unless they are younger.

    I am going to try and do weekly updates on this group for fun and to see how the guesses work out! I was thinking male on chick one because the copper coming in on the wings but the more I look the more I think it may be a girl with a lot of leakage or ma just moly out later. These are out of some really nice show winning parents..I'm excited to see how they turn out!

    With Marans, comb is the biggest indicator.

    I could tell mine by 2 weeks of age as the males were already sprouting noticeable combs.

    My guess at this point is chick #2 which already has some serious teeth showing on that single comb.

    Stance and tail feathers mean nothing. Marans stand taller than other chicks...but those combs will telecast the males.

    So my guess at this point is watch chick #2.
