    And my Golden Cuckoo Marans:

    I'm thinking that either they are both roos or both pullets

    The first:
    Wasn't cooperative here: [​IMG]

    The second... a little more "Golden"

    And last but not least, our Speckled Sussex... My little girl named Oliver:

    I think your SS is a cockerel. I hatched a bunch of those and all the ones with the major white on the chests and very round bodies were male.

    If the wheaton/blue wheatons were boys, they would be getting in black or blue chest feathers, so they are all girls.

    Ameraucanas all look like pullets. The last one could possibly be a splash wheaten.

    Ask the seller if this is possible.

    Let me know when you need that rooster....... [​IMG]

    Jean and Melissa: You just made my day!

    That means that 7 of my 12 are pullets instead of 3 of 12!

    I'm waiting to put some more wheaten/bluewheaten eggs in the bator so perhaps I'll get a roo out of that.

    Pretty sure the Wheatens are all girls. I would go with boys for all the rest, although one of them I wouldn't bet on...could be a girlie [​IMG]
