    This is my first time raising chicks and I got some black copper Marans and buff orpington. All of them are about 5 weeks old but I have no clue as to the sex of them, all of the Marans are skittish even though I have held them since day one and the buffs are honestly goof balls lol.

    They are but young yet. I do see one marans boy, the one with the pink comb. Give them a few weeks, and watch for more pink combs.

    Looks like at least 1 Maran and 1 BO are roosters. I think I see more than that, though.
