    Hi, you may have seen my post on the other thread, but again, these aren't black copper marans, and I'm sorry to share even more bad news but I think they're both roosters. 5 weeks old is really young for a hen to be having any red showing in her comb like these two both do.

    well heck- at least was hoping for one hen out of two. the one definitely has more waddle than the other though- so maybe still one and one... maybe. anyone have thoughts on what they might be?

    They might be partridge cochins, or a cross of them.

    They both look like Partridge Cochins. And, I'm thinking both are males. You'll know for sure in a few more weeks, as the males develop a black breast.

    One of my "black copper marans" looks very similar to yours. Well I was told she was a black copper marans but others have said they don't think so. Probably a cross between one and something else maybe? She's 4 weeks old.
