    Here is my flock last time you saw them they were four weeks old now they are three months old. I have 1 EE 1 GLW 2 Marans and 2 favorrel I am also getting a pair of blue wheaton amerucanas on the 20th (I will post Pics when I get them). These all will live in my chicken tractor with the fence run. PLEASE ALSO TELL ME IF ANY OF THESE LOOK LIKE ROOS THEY ARE 3 MONTHS!(I already Know the Favvorels are hens but what about the rest?)

    Hey there,

    The pics are kind of small (good for dial-up users; bad for getting a good look at your birds), but your Marans look like hens to me. It's only a guess though, like I said, it's kind of hard to see. If you have any Marans that are noticeably lighter in color than the others, those are most likely roos. I'm not very familiar with your other breeds, so no guesses there from me!

    You might get a better response if you post this in the what breed/gender forum?

    I'll post a pic of my Marans at that age for you for comparison, if I can dig one up...

    Ok, here you go. Hen in the front, roo kinda behind her/to the right of her. Another hen all the way in the back. You can see how the roo has a lot more white in his feathers, while the hen is mostly a dark charcoal grey. And the roo has a much redder and bigger comb than the hen, too.

    Do you have the original pics saved on your computer, a CD, or thumb drive or something?? Go back to the original picture, double click it so it opens up in the "Microsoft Picture Manager" or whatever program your machine uses. You can resize from there. Or, you might just have to upload the originals to photobucket again. Did you resize them in photobucket? I don't think you can change them once you resize them. But your originals might be fine, just upload them again...good luck!
