    Hi, I'm new to chickens. We have started out with 3 birds. I think we have 3 pullets but I was wondering if the experts could take a look at my black copper maran and let me know if you think it's a he or she? I believe she/he is approximately 6 weeks old.
    Thanks! [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    :welcome!

    Only one of your pictures came through. That bird looks too young to be six weeks - at six weeks it should be fully feathered. Depending on the age it may be too young to definitively sex at this time.
