    These babies are about 4.5 weeks old. I am fairly certain I have a cockerel and pullet. Are they both Splash Marans? Or is the pullet a blue copper maran?

    I can try for better photos if it is helpful, they are scared of my phone/camera.

    Probably both Splash. If she develops copper through the head/neck/chest area, then you can call her Splash Copper Marans.

    She's iffy to me. She could be a light blue, or a dark splash. You'll be able to tell better when she's fully feathered.
