    I had 1 black copper Maran roo and 4 random pullet as last year I let free range until one evening I came home to put them up and all I had left was my roo. Pretty sure it was the dogs so this year I built a larger coop and plan on only letting them out supervised and building a large run. I ordered about 16 chicks among other things and 3 were supposed to be black copper Maran hens. I am not close to an expert but this looks like one to me, and looks like a roo. You guys think it's a pullet or rooster? Just need to know cause I have a good home for my older rooster if need be and just seeing if the hatchery messed me up on this one. Thanks for any help!
