Hi all! I have two straight run French Copper Maran chicks that are coming six weeks old. I believe one is a roo, and one is a pullet. I know it may be too early to tell but I didn’t know if anyone had experience with this breed! Opinions would be appreciated :) attached are pictures are both!

So that being said, these guys and 4 other pullets are the same age about 6 weeks. Introducing to 7 other pulleys only 3 weeks ahead of them. Should I re home one rooster? Do I wait till they’re older to see which one id like for my flock? I’m a newbie here!

I would personally wait to see which rooster is a better fit. I have been surprised a few months down the line with how awesome a rooster is compared to how it was as a chick, and vice versa! I've had really great rooster chicks get very aggressive towards the hens that I've had to re-home. If it works out keep them together and see who is a better fit :)
