I've searched this forum for weeks, attempting to sex my Black Copper Maran chicks.  I still have no clue... Any opinions?

 

5 weeks old today.  I fear the one on the left is a roo due to the large size of it's comb compared to the others....

The one on the left is most likely a roo. The one on the right seems to be a hen. And the one in the middle is at a hard angle to tell.I'm thinking you just have one too, the one on the left.

The left is most likely a cockerel.

 

 

 

Here's some photos for comparison: 

 

Here is a BCM cockerel.

 

 

Cockerel on the left.  Pullet on the right.

 

 

 

 

 

Guess which on is the cockerel?

It's the little guy on the left giving us the stink-eye.  Fooled me too.  

 

 

 

 

That's why he's called Lying Larry.

 

 

Hope this helps.
