    Black Copper Marans?

    I'm a new chicken mama looking for help identifying the breed and sex of these chickens! They were in rough shape when we brought them home, missing feathers in some places. The lady we purchased them from told us they were Black Copper Marans, but I'm not too sure. We're also not 100% that...

    15 Week Black Copper Marans

    I've been calling this 15 week old BCM "Harold" for a couple of months but I'm not so sure anymore. Any guesses or clear markers as to the sex of this bird? I'm new to this and appreciate your expertise! :)

    BCM rooster singing the egg song

    I thought it would be fun to share this video of my rooster, Odin, singing back and forth with my Wyandotte hen as she laid her egg (you can hear her a little bit, too).

    Update on mystery chicks breed? Gender?

    I have some strong ideas on breed and gender but I wanted to see what you all thought about it. Pretty sure I’ve got a barred rock, White Cochin, golden laced wyandotte, black copper marans, and a mystery brown chick. They are all supposed to be rare or brown egg layers and they came from Murry...

    Hello! I have a Black Copper Maran rooster and he is the only one i have of that breed. I wanted to use his genetics but am worried about his temperament. He is way too rapey towards my girls. They don't want to be around him because of it. What do you think, will his male offspring display...

    What is going on with this BC Maran?

    This is a 7 week old BC Maran. My question is what is going on with it’s feathers? It is hard to photograph but they almost look frizzled. The shaft is extremely fine, the feathers curl and seem fuzzy. Has anyone had a bird like this? Does this go away with maturity?

    Marans With Featherless Legs?

    Hello! I am VERY interested in getting Black Copper Marans in a few years (Those EGGS!), but I strongly dislike feathered legs (No offense, but I like my chicken legs sleek lol).

    Searching for French Black Copper Marans Pullets in Florida.

    Hey everybody, The storm has taken two of my FBCM pullets already, which leaves me with just one at 12 weeks old. So if anybody happens to have any, I’d love to pick up 2 or 3 more after the storm passes. I’m located in west palm beach Florida.
