    Is there any truth in the statement that French Black Copper Marans pullets grow their tail feather before the cockerels? At 1 week, there is a distinct difference. Some have very obvious tails and some clearly are not showing them!

    At such a young age is really hard to tell. Maybe post pics in a couple weeks? Pullets can feather out faster but I don't see anything distinctly roosterish on any of them.
