    Here is a pic of my supposed BCM. He/she is about 9 weeks. I am wondering if the red in the wings means roo?[​IMG]

    OK, He/she does not look like the many black copper marans I have ever raised----cockerel or pullet. So I do not know what breed but it looks like a young cockeral----kinda---can't see the side of the back good because it has its wings pulled back/up. ??

    Put a card against her neck and look at the feathers on the card and if they're pointed its a roo if they're rounded it's a girl.

    Red feathers don't necessarily mean a roo it could just be the breed.

    Doesn't have the pointy feather tip design.

    Definitely a cockerel, probably a Blue Copper Marans.

    Yep, it has the rooster red bleeding in in the wings. Cockerel, not sure of breed.
