    Ok I have a few Splash Marans that I hatched out 3 months ago (they are all the same age). They are very sweet birds and I can't wait till they start to lay as they hatched from VERY dark eggs (especially for Splashes). Anyways, just trying to get an idea of what my pen is shaping up to look like on the boys vs. girls scoreboard :)

    1, 3, 6, and 7 all look to be girls 1 & 3 definitely, 6&7 have some growth but not much, and they are still quite pale compared to the obvious #5rooster...the others I am on the fence but more leaning to those being boys...

    chick 2: Cockerel
    chick 3: Pullet
    chick 4: Cockerel
    chick 5: Cockerel
    chick 6: Pullet ( I'm not 100% sure, post a pic showing her/his tail)
