    I've searched this forum for weeks, attempting to sex my Black Copper Maran chicks. I still have no clue... Any opinions?

    5 weeks old today. I fear the one on the left is a roo due to the large size of it's comb compared to the others....

    The one on the left is most likely a roo. The one on the right seems to be a hen. And the one in the middle is at a hard angle to tell.I'm thinking you just have one too, the one on the left.

    The left is most likely a cockerel.



    Here's some photos for comparison:

    Cockerel on the left. Pullet on the right.





    Guess which on is the cockerel?

    It's the little guy on the left giving us the stink-eye. Fooled me too.




    That's why he's called Lying Larry.

    Hope this helps.
