    These pics are of an EE (the lightest) and 4 blue copper marans. It looks to me like I have one pullet and the rest are cockerals. I am particularly interested in the ee, but need my suspicions confirmed on the rest as well. Thanks in advance!

    I see one girl in the group pic, the one farthest back. The three dark marans look like roos. With the EE, the color and size of the comb say boy, but I am not seeing any red wattles, how old is it?

    They are all about 9 weeks approximately.

    Yes, unfortunately I only see one female. [​IMG] They are all very beautiful birds, though!

    the EE is a cockerel, they dont usually develop wattle and if they do they are usually really small, all depending on what they are mixed with.
