    I purchased 2 Copper marans that are supposed to be hens, but they sure don't look like it. They're 4 months old and do NOT crow. Tail feathers have a rounded shape, but those combs... both look just like the image[​IMG]

    It's ok. I knew in my gut they were, but being new, I let her convince me otherwise. She was very nice and said she'd replace them.

    Guess you both learned something then. Sounds like a great person to deal with then. Knowing boys from girls is the first step, then breed from breed, then color from color.

    Next time I won't let someone convince me I'm wrong, when I know I'm right!
