    I noticed 2 of my black copper marans fighting. Like 2 roosters do in the yard. They did this several times that I saw today. They are close to a month old.

    Doesn't necessarily mean they are roosters. Both sexes fight. They are setting up the pecking order.

    OK, I was curious because none of the other 30 something chicks (not all of them are cbm though) have done this...that I have seen.

    I was hoping to have 2 roos and 10 hens out of the batch.... [​IMG]

    Don't give up hope. They may still be boys, but yeah both sexes do it.
    My girls always fought worse than my roos. Still do as a matter of fact.
