    Any idea what these two roosters are?

    Hi, These two roosters are 11 months old. Got them from someone not very knowledgeable on chicken breeds. Do you have any idea about what breed they might be? Especially the black one.

    Black Copper Maran and Oliver Eggers

    Hi all. I'm thinking about adding a Black Copper Maran and an Oliver Egger to my flock. I have a Blue Maran, but I read that Black Copper Marans aren't heat hardy. I live in West Tn, Zone 7.
