That sounds like a lot of work. That will be a lot of room for your birds. Very nice! I am so glad you are back my friend. You where well missed by everyone. It already got down to 17 degrees Fahrenheit here. Highs supposed to only be like 38 degrees Fahrenheit today. Surprisingly I have 2 pullets laying and one older hen. I have someone taking 4 or 5 older BLC cockerels. I think he is coming today.

Not too sure on this ones age, but I think s/he’s a black Maran
With that color pattern your cockerel would be a Black Copper Marans (BCM) or a Wheaten Marans. We need to see a full side shot so that we can see his wing. If the Wing Bay is black then he is a BCM and if it is Brown (or Rust colored) then he is a Wheaten. Black Marans are solid black. Do you have any Marans Pullets?

The black cockerel is a Black Copper Marans and the white cockerel is most likely a Splash Copper Marans or a Splash Marans. The white plumage hides the true color of a Splash chook.
The guy I bought them off said the white one was a light Sussex, but then if he was to be believes they are 8 weeks old now, and they’re pretty big for 8weeks.
