I bought 6 pullets when they were only 6 days old. I've only had chickens for 2 years and never that young, so when the breeder sais she done it ling enough she knows hens from rooster so yojng , i believe her. Well now at 4 months im thinking i may have 2 hens and 4 roosters. Ive looked on line fo images of hens and rooster for cochens, cuckoo maran, copper maran, and olive eggers. Still not sure and i wanted color eggs, so when can you tell? I will try to get some picture s, the lady says she will exchange all rooster for hens, but the pic i sent her i Aug she still says all hens. Help,

I don't know those breeds but I think you could be right, they all seem to have the longer skinny feathers growing in on their necks. How do they compare with neck feathers to the ones you think are girls?
