    I know this seems like a lot of pics, but I really, really want to know. The Lavenders are just over 11 weeks and the Marans are just over 12 weeks old.
    Maran #1 has had the most color and largest comb since about week 3. The others have been developing at a much slower rate. Not sure if that means anything.
    Thanks, Cathryn

    Maran #1 is definently a boy, I'd guess the other two marans are girls.

    The lavenders are a bit hard to see. Can we get bigger pics?
