    These black Copper Marans are 1 week old. Number 2 is the smallest of them all, and has not started getting tail feathers like the other 4. They were ordered from My Pet Chicken as a straight run. I know it's super early, but would love any input on what I should be looking for.

    Sorry, but they are to young to sex at this age. If you post again when they are around 8-10 weeks we can sex them more accurately.

    agree it would be also a neat experiment to see if the 3 that are standing up tall like cockerels at this early age - do indeed end up males.
