    Does anyone have pics of day old wheaten marans? I had one hatch yesterday out of 17 eggs set and am hoping it's not a roo so I can keep it! I'd love some adult pics too! Thanks:D

    These are pictures (light colored chicks) when mine first hatched a couple of weeks ago. They've changed a lot....I'll try to get some new pictures later. There is one little light silkie in there too.

    In the first picture you can see on the chick to the far left the barring on the wing starting to show up.

    I went down and took a few shots of them today. They'll be 2 weeks tomorrow.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    What are the dark color ones??? I got 2 of them yesterday, from Rural King, and put them under my broody last night. (she's been trying to hatch golf balls for over 2 weeks now)

    Quote:I really don't have a clue, although I'm pretty sure the first picture is a roo, just from how he stands. These are my first wheatens so I'm clueless. My cuckoos I can tell pretty early on.

    Quote:I don't think they're probably the same kind since the dark ones in the picture are blue wyandottes and they're kind of hard to find. I got the eggs from a breeder.

    I'll have to get some pics up so someone can let me know what breed they are. I'm clueless [​IMG]
