I have 2 french black copper marans chicks. They are about 10 weeks and 14 weeks. I showed pictures on her and everyone said they were roos. The breeder swears they are pullets and said to wait. She said she would trade them for pullets if either or both turn out to be roos, but she is sure they are pullets. I sent pictures to another BCM breeder and she also says that they look like pullets and the fact that their is black on the combs really makes her think they are pullets. I know nothing about marans lol, so do the pullets have black on their combs, cause these chicks do have quite a lot of black on the combs. Can roos have black on their combs? I have tried to research this and I have only ever read about hens with black on their combs. I posted on the Black Copper Marans thread, but noone replied to it. They do have fairly good size combs and waddles, but compared to the roos I see posted the same age, they are small. So I would love more information about this black comb thing. Here they are at 8 weeks and 12 weeks.
