    Here are my 2 black copper marans chicks at a little over 7 weeks old. Can anyone tell if they are boys or girls?? One has feathered feet, the other doesn't. The one without feathered feet has a little bit of red on the ends of its feathers on its upper back that the other one doesn't have.

    Hard for me to tell. If I were to guess... lower pic... one on the left pullet, on the right cockerel.

    Judging by their combs, they both look like pullets to me.
