    Thank you in advance, as I would be grateful for your help to determine the gender of my birds (I am new to owning chickens). I purchased 4 pullets (two cuckoo marans and two easter eggers) and two straight run black copper marans. I suspect that one of my black coppers will be a rooster.

    Welcome to byc! The only one that looks like a rooster right now is the last one, but the pics are sort of far away to be sure

    Last one is a roo...I have a few black and blue CMs...the boys showed themselves very early. The girls still looked like your girl at 3 months. One of mine is finally getting her red comb and wattles at 4 months so I'm hoping she'll begin laying in a few weeks.
