    Okay. Wondering if this is a girl or boy? This one is the sweet one definitely more docile and curious. They will be 7 weeks this Friday. What do you guys think?

    I'm thinking girl the 4th one down shows another next to it and that would be the size of the comb if it were male however not all animals conform to their breed/ gender some will have a bigger comb others will have smaller a picture, in two weeks should help.

    They are black copper marans. Love their feathered feet.

    The other one in picture is definitely a rooster. He is even trying to make attempts at crowing. Godiva's comb is half the size. Their legs look the same to me and his wattles are bigger.

    Would it sound really weird to guess rooster? [​IMG] To me the comb is slightly too big for a pullet. My boys always get their combs at different ages, which can be so confusing. Some brighten up at just two weeks of age, others wait until they are 7 weeks of age.

    Can you get a close up pic of the comb and wattles in natural lighting?

    agree with Michael - good lighting is important- when pictures are the only way to judge them
