    I'm so excited to be able to add a couple of Black Copper Marans to my small backyard flock [​IMG]Pictures taken at 1 week old. Thoughts on roo or pullet? My guess is one of each but would love to hear thoughts from experienced people =)

    Cute! Please post pictures when they are 6-8 weeks old, they're too young to accurately sex right now. :)

    x 4 even 6-8 weeks of age would be great. How on earth do you get them to stand still like that? Are their feet glued to the towel paper?

    Too young...but BCM's often telecast early.

    Roos will have combs that take off pretty fast. Often by 2 weeks of age you will see a big difference in comb size. Red comes in by 4 weeks.

    Not true for all lines of BCM, but overall true with BCM.

    Post photos again around 4 weeks of age.
