    Need help with the gender of these chicks please, the top pic is a 6 week old Blue Copper Marans, the next two are 5 week old Chocolate Cuckoos Orps. Two of the three have suspicious looking combs, but I am staying optimistic!

    [​IMG] The first chick is a cockerel, the second is a pullet, and I'm not sure about the last one.

    Thats what I was afraid of :( but thank you so much for the second opinion! I'm hoping that the chick in the bottom pic turns out to be a hen.
