    Bev Davis was connecting me with someone looking for a BCM Wheaten Roo. How do I know if my roo is Wheaten? I've never heard of this before and my research hasn't given me the answer I need!

    A Black Copper Maran rooster can't be wheaten. A wheaten maran rooster can be wheaten, but black copper is the color, correct? Not sure how to tell the difference between black coppers and wheatens, they look the same to me [​IMG] But I have bad eyesight

    Look at the wing tip of the bird......if it is cinnamon in color, like the bird photo'd above, he is a Wheaten.

    CBL~ That hen is lovely.
     
  5. Hehe, thats why I showed a pic... I just found her on BYC though, I don't remember which BYCer she belonged too, all I know was it was from a year old thread or something like that
