    We got eight baby chicks including two black copper Maran chicks that were hatched locally when they were about 20 hours old. The guy we got them from let us know later that the Marans had not been sexed. They both have the longer wing tip feathers indicating hens but I am not sure if this method can be used on this breed.

    Any thoughs?
