    I only see one Pullet (E) in the black copper Marans and as for the easter eggers.. You will have to wait longer, it's hard to sex those until they are older.

    Based just on my limited experience I would guess that E is a girl and I is a girl, F,G, also possibly girls. H could be a boy but I would wait to be sure. I think your guesses on the first bunch are right- except for E they all look like roosters to me. I am curious to see what others guess.

    E, F, G and I look like girls to me. A, C, D probably boys. Not sure about B...

    Thanks everyone - I was hoping for at least 2 of the marans being pullets but I think only one is... [​IMG]

    I will post additional pictures of the second bunch (EE's) as they mature more...

    That being said....

    Anyone want a FCBM cockeral (or two or three or....)????? [​IMG]
