Super young, but I thought it would be fun to guess anyway :)

    My chicks were 2 weeks old on Friday, so that makes them what, 17 days? They're all "mutts" but I am interested to know if anyone has any thoughts on the coloring. Our 2 roos are an EE and a dom. Dom is alpha so I was assuming most of the babies would be his, but I'm not sure.

    That's my thought, too. I'll feel lucky if the rest end up being pullets. :)

    I think it's hen, roo, hen, roo. But of course it's really early.

    Just thought I'd update - 3 of the 4 were pullets! I'm not sure what chick #4 above was - we lost him/her shortly after I took this picture. But #2 is a beautiful dominique hen, and the other 2 are EE mixes. So cute!
