    Hello!
    I am new to the forum, and new to raising chickens, well i had some chickens growing up..

    anyway,

    I bought 5 chicks at a day old, 2 blue maran, 2 black maran, and one Ameraucana.
    they are now 7 weeks ish....
    My guess is, and maybe because its what we were shooting for...
    the black marans, and the ameraucana are hens
    the bigger blue is a hen, and the other the roo
    i find it hard to believe, that i would hit the straight run lotto...


    i think he is the roo..

    Both blues appear to be cockerels
    Your Ameraucana is actually an Easter Egger (commonly misrepresented as Ameraucana) - can you get a clear photo of it's comb?
    The blacks, for now, look to be pullets.
