    I think all 3 of these are hens but not sure they are 6 weeks old.

    All pullets :) congrats. I have 5 blue copper marans that are a week older that yours. Three of mine are Roos and they have a huge red comb already. My hens look just like yours

    6 weeks is a bit early to be sure. Some boys aren't obvious until after 8 weeks old. They look like pullets for now. Keep an eye out for dark red 'copper' on the shoulders, that would mean male for sure.

    Yeah mine were pretty obvious by 2 weeks as well. Lots of chest bumping and big combs compared to my girls. It was funny watching them spar with each other :)
