    Hi there, I'd be interested to hear your views on these three. I have my own thoughts .... I hatched all three under my broody bantam. One is an Olive Egger, the other 2 are Copper Marans

    A - The Black Copper Marans ... boy or girl ?

    Really! I was thinking the Black one might be a boy .... I hope you are right. What bits distinguish them as girls to you?

    I think th top photo is possibly a rooster, notice the rounded tail feathers? The only hens I've ever seen with rounded tailed feathers are Easter Eggers, not all EE's of course but some.

    THanks for all your comments posters!
    NewHen - i'm thinking I would like a BCM cockerel so if none of mine turn out to be boys maybe we could discuss ..... my only small problem is one set of neighbours. Hey Ho
