    This is Rosie the Black Copper Maran and she is supposed to be a pullet, but her comb has developed fairly earlier than her three (unrelated) sisters. Rosie is two and a half weeks old and I know she is too young to sex definitively, but we are not allowed to have roosters here and last time we had a male it broke my heart. Anyway, here are some pictures I just took like 5 minutes ago. We got her from this place called Mill Valley Chickens and they source their stock from Myer or McMurray or something.

    Here are some pictures from when she was a day old:

    At this age, flipping a coin will be as accurate as trying to guess its gender. Check back when it is 8-12 weeks of age and we'll be able to help you more.
