    [​IMG] Markk I am really new at this too but it would probably help a lot if you posted a few pictures of your chicks. You will probably get a lot of responses. [​IMG]

    I hace BCM too. You should be able to tell by now. The cockerels should have the copper coloring already coming in on their wings and backs. The females will be all black at that age. Hope this helps you.
