I have five nearly 4 week old blue birchen marans. One is so obviously a rooster that I thought maybe you could help me sex the other.

I know it's early but with chick 5 being so clear in roo genes, I thought I'd see what some experts say for the others. Also anyone looking for a blue birchen marans roo?!

Thanks, Megan

they act more aggressive than the three others (smaaland and cream legbars) that are autosexed and are sure to be girls... I thought the 50/50 rule would give me a few girls. I’ll repost in a few weeks.
I think Mother Nature is teaching me a lesson here because all I wanted was blue birchen Marans...
Thanks for your input!

Here they are at nearly 6 weeks!
Keeping them the same numbers:
chick #1

Chick #3

Chick #4

Then this photo has chick #2 and #5 in it (and an autosexed smaaland pullet):

Let me know what you think. I'm still trying to rehome the one sure cockerel so it'd be nice to rehome all the boys at once...
thanks for your help!
