    My guess is that the one with the tiny comb is a roo. Hard to tell which pics are of which bird.

    Thank you.....
    I have taken 2 pictures of each chick. So starting with the cuckoo there are 2 pics of her and then so on.......

    Well I knew it! That one with the big comb is the roo, but I wonder about the others...

    wow......that is lots of roos

    I guess if they are "breeder" bird roos I can sell them right?
    How much would someone charge for a black copper maran roo and a cuckoo roo?

    Ok, here's what I think.

    I think #1 is a cuckoo pullet.

    I can't tell if the second one is blue or black, but I think pullet.

    #3 is SO roo. Looks like Black Copper

    #4 I say black copper pullet

    #5 looks like a blue copper pullet

    #6 the coloring looks just like my blue copper roo, but with a MUCH smaller comb... the jury is still out on this one.


    When I come get the little NN baby, I'll tell you for sure what I think about #2... I just can't tell what color she is.

    What did the breeder say?
