    Autosexing Black Copper Marans?

    I’m confused. Lately I’ve been doing research on Black Copper Marans, trying to figure out if they’re autosex or not, but all I got is mixed results. Nothing I found stated whether they are or not. Your thoughts? 😁

    Two Laying Hens - Killeen, Tx

    We have two 10 month old laying hens we are selling. They are awesome but we just have too many for our backyard. I believe they are sexlinks. $20 each or $35 for both. Delivery available in the Killeen/ Fort Hood area. We just want them to go to a good home. I will post more and better pics later.

    Buff Plymouth Rock roo x Barred Plymouth Rock hen??

    Has anyone ever tried this cross? I know it will be a sex-link, but am wondering about the colors and egg production. From what it seems, standard sex-links (red or black) produce more and larger eggs than both of their parent breeds. Is this true for all crosses? Can I see some pictures of your...
