    I'm so excited. I'm going to buy 4-6 weeks Olive Egger and Copper Maran chicks tomorrow but the owner is not sure if they are male or female. Is there a way to tell? I really don't want or need any roosters at this time so I'll be taking a risk buying them. Does anyone know if there are any tricks to telling male from female particularly with these two breeds? Thanks!

    Okay just remembered there is a breed and gender thread so I'm going to post this there.
