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...
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! :)
I just got home from picking up some wonderful hatching eggs froma town a couple hours away. She had beautiful Black Copper Marans and Speckled Sussex. I ordered a dozen and she gave me 18! I dropped one.
What mix do you guys think these are. We were told a mix between amercauna black copper maran and maybe silkie they said likely OE/EE we have some azure blues and some brown laying red sex links currently. Thoughts anyone they are both very nice boys
new to this. Thanks
So i picked up some “purebred black copper maran” chicks this summer. I’ve got 3 hens, 2 of which look like they are purebred but then i’ve got this girl who’s got some fuzzy cheeks! any guesses to what she is? or what color of eggs she’ll lay?
Greetings everyone. My name is poppy jones.
I live in cannonsville reservior area . We have a 5 acre land that turned into a farm these past three years.We bought a tractor this spring and expanded the planting to about 2 1/2 acres of veggies of all kinds.
This spring we added chickens, 17 red...
I started with adopted six mix hens and one silkie rooster from my aunt. She moved-in with her kids, and could not take the flock with her. Now 6 month latter I already added an additional 6 Black copper marans and 3 ayam ketawa (laugling chicken). During this short time of raising...
I apologize. I posted earlier a picture of my other BCM and just realized THIS is the one I had the most questions about.
So I bought “her” ( ??? ) while she was a baby. Was told she was a black copper maran. Where the rest of my flock are now starting to get a little red on their faces and...
I was sold this little as a baby. Literally just today I noticed she was just now starting to get a little red on her face. Comb is still small and black. Feathered legs. I was told she was a BCM but wasn’t exactly sure as her comb and wattles were always black! Just getting a little color on...
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...
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...
12-week old Black Copper Marans cockerel from Greenfire Farms breeding line available - $25. Also have a couple of four-week old likely cockerels from Greenfire’s French National champion line but need a few more weeks to be certain of sex. DM if interested
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?
Looking for Double Laced Silver Barnevelder. Black Copper Marans, and Lavender Orpington hatching eggs. Hoping someone sells (and ships to MA) 2 or even all 3 of these. Must be purebred and a good SOP-centered breeding program :jumpy:fl
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). Are Marans without feathered legs bred often? Would they be difficult to obtain via hatching eggs or from a breeder...
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.
hi! My name’s Jackie, this is my first post. I’m in WA, and we just got our first chicks this year. I bought 2 olive eggers and 2 black copper marans from a local farm (plus 2 ameraucanas from our farm store). The farmer put 4 black, nearly identical chicks in the box and I don’t know which is...
Bought 15 Black Copper Marans eggs from North of 89 Farm (Ontario, Canada)
After letting the eggs rest and letting the incubator (Brinsea Ovation eco) run all Sunday I placed the eggs in at 2:00 pm
Humidity was maintained at about 40%
Added 4 Cream Legbar eggs at...
