I've had my three little chicks five days now. So far, so good! I think I know which one is 5 1/2 weeks old and which two are 3 1/2 weeks old! Buffy, the Orpington, looks bigger than the other two and does a lot more scratching around in the brooder. At first I wasn't sure because I know black is thinning, so the barred rock and cuckoo marans may have just SEEMED smaller, but hubby confirms my original guess. It drives me crazy not to name the other two, but I can hardly tell them apart at this stage. They both have a white spot on their heads. I would think they were the same, only I watched the breeder got them out of different brooders there. Even as adults, I've noticed the two breeds look a lot alike. I sometimes name a pet by their personality, but that would have to wait a while. ARGGGHHHH!!!! Oh, another thought...........what if they aren't all female???? I'd hate to have to re-home a rooster!
