I am trying to decide what I want to keep. I got 6 black copper Marans and 3 blue copper Marans chicks that are about 2 months old now. I have two cuckcoo Marans hens and two cuckoo Marans roosters that are about 6 months old and two cuckoo Marans pullets (most likely) that are 2 months old. I also have a trio of black copper chicks that are 3 months old. All I want is a nice assortment of 3-4 each variety, but I'm not sure if I want a blue copper or black copper rooster. I'm pretty sure there is a trio inthe blues (1 rooster and 2 pullets) and there is one of the 2 month old black coppers that is definately a rooster and very nice... feathery legged, getting waddles and comb sooner than everyone else. Any opinions on which ones to keep? Are the blues or blacks any more likely to produce darker eggs?
