These four hatched on May 18th.
I have a BO/FBCM:




An EE/FBCM;





FBCM #1 (I'm fairly certain this one is a roo):







FBCM #2 (this one's face isn't as red as this pic makes it look):




I, of course, am trying to imagine all of them into pullets. I am new at figuring it out, so I would love opinions and tips.
Thanks!
Carrie

The first one has yellow skin, so not an Orpington/Marans mix.
All look like pullets.
Interesting! The lady I bought the eggs from said she was pretty sure the lighter brown ones were her BO, and her only rooster is a FBCM. Maybe she has a Wyandotte. I'll have to ask her next time I talk to her.

These were from a classroom hatch, and I let other people pick and just kept what was left.
They are: Professor Lockhart, Hagrid, Professor Snape and Samwise. We have been referring to them all as boys so if they turn out to be girls we will be pleasantly surprised!

Thanks,
Carrie

So white is the dominant color. Gotcha. Luckily, I just have a backyard flock and the students whose families took the other birds were just looking for egg layers as well.

Thanks!
