    I hatched out some FC marans. They are about five - six weeks old now. Some of them have coopering, and others don't. Is this normal?

    Pics would help but yes it is. They may be your roos. I had one, Redneck and he had color all over at that age. He has the best coloring of any of my roos right now. Just too much on his breast, but that is fading now.

    here are my birds when they were about that age. The girls now that I look my have had some mossyness and those are probably the ones that have some copper in their hackles.
