Looks like all boys to me, I guess the best thing about it is the genes for the dark egg colour comes from the roosters.

Hi L,

I am going with boy for yours, because of the combs as well.

Mine looks like a boy, in colouring, except for the comb. I am still driving the girls darker (remember that wheaten was a sport off copper black originally, maybe if I keep going down that path....:)...just kidding!)

At least they dont look like feather legged ISA's now.

Reeder found the typical genotype for Wheaten Marans & OEG, and Salmon Faverolles included Mahogany &/or Dilute. The colour range varies from homozygous Dilute with no Mahogany (Cream) to homozygous Mahogany with no Dilute (Clay).When both genes are present in the heterozygous state all in between shades are segregated.

David, how cream is cream? Has anyone got a picture of homozygous Dilute with no Mahogany? Any idea how rare this would be? Also, what would homozygous Dilute WITH Mahogany look like? (Excuse me if these are ignorant questions.)

The one that I hatched a few months ago that may possibly have been a clay pullet turned out to be a cockerel. From what you say, I take it that all mine must be heterozygous. I have a second batch just starting to feather up now so it will be interesting to see what else I get.

What about the cockerals? What colour range can be expected, or are they all similar?
