Here are more pics during the daytime. Can anyone help me confirm what he/she is if it isn't a BCM?

It's not a black copper Marans, it's a cuckoo Marans. Same breed, different color variety.

Looks like a cockerel to me, and probably a Cuckoo Marans.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Cuckoo Marans

 

At this age and stage, almost certainly a roo.

 

Not all bad, it is Marans, which means darker eggs, but will not be as dark as BCM.

 

You can use him to get to Olive Eggs if you have a blue layer, or EE, but it won't be dark....and all the chicks will be cuckoo'd (stripey) from him.

 

But you did get your Marans.

Looks like a cockerel. I just went through the same weeks ago deciding. The pinkish comb says it all.

More than likely I think its gonna be a HE. The comb is really pink but no wattle yet.
