    Which have little white tips on the wings? New babies almost 2 weeks old. It's just a speck on white on the very tip and the other chicks are picking at it.

    In my experience my Australorp pullets always had some white on their wings, once they moulted their first set of feathers it didnt' grow back though [​IMG]

    I have 9 australorps right now at 11 weeks and each and every one of them still have the white wing tips - though all of them are roosters as well.

    I think I am going to have to get out the magic marker and fill in the white spot. They are trying to peck it out. Poor little things.

    Your pic is too close and out of focus but it looks like an Aussie. Look at the other pics. Aussies have clean legs and it appears that the marans have fuzzy legs.
    My aussies at 12 weeks still have white wing tips.
