    I think that you have sexed your birds properly.

    That splash EE boy (or whatever he is) sure will be pretty! And that blue boy with the red hackles and red wing feather leakage is just lovely! I also agree with your assessment!

    I agree all the boys are beautiful.........I can only keep one though [​IMG] I think I am going to keep the white EE/blue maran cross........suppose to be an olive egger. I don't think any of the olive eggers turned out to be pullets. I think I ended up w/ 2 blue maran pullets, a polish pullet & a cuckoo maran pullet

    I guess I'd keep whichever one seems to be most courteous with the girls, or have they not come into their hormones yet? If you got all of these at the same time, then the odds sure weren't in your favor, weren't they? Good luck with your choice!

    Your sexing is correct [​IMG].

    Where are you located? That second bird is pretty nice looking, is he a pure Marans?
