Black Copper Maran Pullet or Roo - Page 5

I know Daisy is a David but it's hard to let go. Today, he's 9 weeks old. He's so handsome. He's not crowing yet. I hope I'm wrong about your new batch. I hope they're all pullets.

He is SOO handsome! When did he get his copper? Patrick has blue in his black feathers but still no copper. Can you keep him if he decides not to be the crowing kind of rooster?

I'm hoping for even just one pullet from this batch!

 

Just for fun I made little photo comparisons of my roosters vs. the new babies at one day old.

 

Here is Petunia on the left next to known-rooster Patrick, on the right:

 

 

Here is Lily on the right next to known-rooster Louis on the left:

 

Curious to see how it will work out!

Of course I would keep him if he didn't crow! He started getting them at 4 weeks. Your comparisons are cool! They look alike! Are you keeping your cockerels?

Whoa, I was just wondering if there was a way to prevent a rooster from crowing, and look what I found!

I'm wishfully thinking that maybe my new babies have a bit less comb than my roo-babies did. We'll see.

 

I'm fortunately out in a rural area where there are no rooster restrictions and actually no neighbors close enough to be disturbed. We'll need to see how it goes with the boys. We'll see how well they can behave themselves once the testosterone kicks in.

A closer look at your new babies do show smaller combs. Hey, maybe you can adopt my David!

Aww - I would love to! He's SOO handsome. How do you ship a rooster though?

Hmmm...we only live 1.5 hours away. If you're serious, we can talk about meeting halfway next month. I want him to go to a good home.

Are you in the market for some chicks, 2 to 6 weeks old, will take 5 dollars each and will deliver the next business day anywhere in South Carolina for $30 and $50 on weekends.  I currently have 100's of chicks:

 

Ameracanas

Barred Rocks

Buff Orphingtons

Road Island Reds

Cornish X

Black Sex Linked

Hmmm... Let me see how it works out with my boys first. I also want to see how many roos I have in my new batch.

 

If I do end up building a rooster bachelor pad I will probably want to have two or three nice boys in it so they can keep each other company. My two little guys are inseparable right now!

Ok, my new babies are 18 days old today, and I'm thinking I have at least a pullet or two in the mix! Baby BCM Petunia in particular is still looking quite girly.

 

 

For comparison, here are my two little super-precocious roos at 18 days. Note the giant pink combs, and wattles!
