    Hi! I asked in another forum but did not get a response so I thought I would try here. I am new to chickens. I ordered two Olive Eggers and two Black Copper Morans. All were supposed to be female. Can someone please help me out in knowing which is what breed and if they are indeed all female? They are about 6-7 weeks. Thank you all! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. The two with the larger red combs are cockerels and the other two look like pullets. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens, hope you enjoy it as much as we do. I remember seeing your name on that site, I didn't know the answer so didn't reply. Others may take awhile to get to you. They probably are checking it out but, if they can't come up with an answer, they go to the next post.

    I don't think you can be certain of an olive egger until she lays . They don't necessarily look a certain way.
