    You can also correct me on the breed if I'm wrong!

    blue laced red wyandotte, 7 weeks

    here are both blue laced red wyandottes, i know its hard to see the other one, but I'm pretty sure that one's a hen.

    2 buff orps, 7 weeks (and a glimpse of the more black wyandotte from earlier)

    most interested in this buff besides the first wyandotte....

    This is my 6 weeker, was told blue maran, but looks like blue splash wyandotte? She/he's a runner and its hard to get a pic of this one!

    Thanks! Sorry if that was confusing! 2 blue laced Wyandottes, 2 Buffs, and 1 blue Maran (?)

    Blue laced are one each roo and pullet, as are the buffs. And you're right, that last bird is a splash laced wyandotte, not a Marans. And it's a roo.

    Aw man! 3 of them?! Great, now I'll have to introduce some new hens to get the 4 I wanted to have. lol

    So is it the Buff that's in front in the pic that has both of them?

    The ones that already have little red combs are boys..the ones that don't have combs, or just have a few orangey looking little bumps are females.

    your buffs are not orps, they have rose combs. They are wyandottes, fron one is a cockeral. Your single comb and light blue laced red wyandottes are also cockerals.

    Your last chick looks lght blue, not splash. the splash almost looks like a buff/white laced red color.

    splash laced red, from feathersite.com

    So farmerChef, you're saying 3 cockerels, too? Or are both the darker Wyandottes cockerels, and also the light blue one, and the front Buff?

    Thank you, everyone! I'm bummed about having to get rid of the 3, but better to do it sooner than later, I guess. We just can't keep roos in our suburb.
