    I purchased eggs from a breeder and 5 hatched. They are Black Copper Marans. BC was marked on these eggs.

    Is there a way to tell roos from pullets [​IMG] in the baby chicks by color or do I need to wait for comb to color and crowing to start. [​IMG]

    I don't know any keys to that color/color sexing them but you ought to be able to tell sex by the waddles/comb ~3 wks...if all else fails, post pix of them here around that age & you'll get answers [​IMG] Pretty babies for sure [​IMG]
