    Ok, so I posted last week about how to sex Marans and someone told me to post pics this week. It could still be quite early but what the heck! These guys were born on July 29th, they were my first hatch [​IMG]

    Here we go:

    #1 (Blue)

    I know! It's kind of weird... I keep wondering if I got all girls (Yay!) or (god forbid) all boys [​IMG]
    Also, they're SO feathered out for their age it's crazy! I'm not sure why but they are growing up SO much faster than the babies I got in February. They're already getting some air when they try to fly!

    1, 2, 7, and 8 are most likely boys. There are others that may be boys as well.

    Geez you guys, way to make my heart sink! [​IMG]

    There better be at least 2 or 3 girls in there, that's all I want to keep... And one of those girls better be my favorite blue cuz I just love HER eyeliner [​IMG] For now I'm going with SunnyDawn's answer so I don't jump out my office window! LOL

    Ok, have to edit that at my boyfriend's request... My favorite, the blue with eyeliner (#5), and his favorite, the little black (#3), better be girls!

    Sorry, it looks like their may be several Cockerels. I think #6 might be a pullet.
