    Hi guys I posted a thread of the same title a few weeks ago of my chicks for TSC.
    Got some great comments and I wanted to post some new photos now that they're
    a month old. :) My camera broke so these pictures are actually of them at three weeks
    old. I'm going to describe any differences I can see in them and I'm going to try and
    borrow a friends camera to post new pics later today.


    These three chicks all came out of a bin labeled Cuckoo Marans.
    1 This is Hazel she has always been black all over except white on the front of the neck and has always
    had the darkest legs. The flash seems to have messed up the color in the second pic but she is definitely black.
    Her comb seems strange to me(I know nothing about them!) It's just been one little bump for two weeks now.

    This is Copper who right before three weeks of age started getting a coppery color
    (hence the name :) ) on his wings. It's all over his chest now too. He's also been the smallest
    of the three.

    This one here I'm definitely certain is a boy. When I took him out in the sunlight
    today his comb was pink/red and his little wattles(sp?) where too!! He's gaining
    the upper hand size wise and has very thick legs now.
