    I have a couple Black Copper Marans that will be 8 weeks old on Monday. The one looks just like a roo. The other one does too until you compare their coloring. Are they both boys or could the blacker one possible be a girl? What do you think?
    This is the boy.

    That's ok, I said i really already thought they were both roos but I guess I needed to hear some other opinions. So I will keep one and sell the other. Plus I have 2 more that will be 6 weeks old on Monday. Not sure on those 2 either. Thanks for your help.
