    The chicken on the left is a Black Copper Marans rooster named Gorgeous George. The chicken on the right is also a Black Copper Marans. Her name is Henny Penny. The problem is she crows and is very colorful for a typical hen. She isn't as colorful as George, but she is pretty. Could she be a hen, or is she a roo and should be called Henry. They are 4.5 months old. What do you think?

    Both birds pictured are male. Black Copper hens look very different from the males.

    Darn! That's what I thought, but I held out hope. Thanks for responding.
