    I got these babies about 2 weeks ago - was told they were about one month old, but one of them seems about a week or so younger. So they might be 5-6 weeks old?
    I know they're too young to sex, but can anyone tell what color each one will end up being?
    The little (hopefully) girl facing camera in Pic one with the red face and black and white crest is Sansa. The grey and brown one, the biggest, is Cookie, and the littlest, yellow one is Odette.

    I will post more pictures as they age to hopefully have the BYC gods sex them! :p

    Looks like gold with black lacing, and a silver with black lacing.

    Cute chicks!

    In case anyone was curious, here's how they've developed so far! These were just taken yesterday. IMG_3358.JPG IMG_3360.JPG IMG_3368.JPG IMG_3375.JPG

    No idea! I'm a newb.
    The grey one was all grey at first, so will possibly be all buff eventually?
    The darkest one was all black with just red/orange on the face, but now that is spreading...
    And the black/white (i guess silver laced?) was originally a mostly yellow fuzzball. I don't know about the buff one - looks like it has black spots on chest. Is that considered a Paint?

    the buff looks a bit like a golden spangled.

    not sure about any others

    They're all mixed colors/patterns (color crossed)
    Very interesting one is the one that looks black in front and blue in back.
    Need a good profile pic of it.
    You know blue is a dilute of black so a bird can't be black AND blue?
    Guess that one didn't read the rules of genetics.

    nice looking flock!

    And @The Moonshiner was clearly right... those are mixed colors.

    thanks for the update.
