    Hey everyone! We are hoping Lupa is a hen, but I have doubts. We have 4 one year old hens and an 8 week old black copper marans also. We have been integrating the little ones with the hens and the OE is the only one they pick on. They aren't too horrible to her, but don't pick on the marans at all.

    Looks like a roo, because of the large, red comb and red patches on the wings and neck

    I think that's definitely a cockerel.
    Welcome to the BYC flock!

    I had one almost identical, comb was smaller, but same markings in the same place.. it was a cockerel. I separated mine for a few days from the other chickens and it took two days to hear a crow when he was calling for the others.
