I know it's probably too early, but I'm impatient and curious. I've read a lot of information as to what to look for and believe that it's probably pointless trying to know what the silkies are until they crow or not, but is it possible to get any ideas about the other chicks? They started hatching 4 weeks ago tomorrow. I believe that I have 2 polish/silkie crosses and 2 black copper marans (as well as the 4 silkies). I'm feeling that one of the marans might be a boy but I know nothing and have never hatched chicks before so I might (hopefully, I'll have to give any boys away) be wrong. The one I'm thinking might be a boy is the one in the middle with his back turned. He's got really thick legs which hopefully can be seen. I'm thinking the one in front is the other maran. It has more feathers than the suspected boy, who is a bit "balder" on the wings and neck. This is the one I'm thinking might be a boy (not a very good photo, I don't know how people manage such good photos when they are always moving about). He's much bigger than everyone else. These are the others. I'm hoping at least one/some are girls. Are there any indications yet, or do I just need to wait? Thanks for any feedback. If nothing can be known yet, enjoy their cuteness.
