    My two Dominique chicks are now 6 weeks old and doing fine but I am not sure if they are boys or girls. Opinions would be appreciated. Sorry I dont know how to upload pictures to the post but
    if you can access my uploads you can see the babies.

    This
    link is good for Barred Rocks, Cuckoo Marans and Dominiques and has very good photos. These are chicks, though. They are easily sexed at hatch. Later on, males are much lighter than females with little to no dark on the leg fronts; in other words, their legs are more bright yellow than females in most cases.
