What bread is this beauty? I believe it's a female? Her sibling is the rooster

    Both birds in this photo are roosters. They look like clean legged Black Copper Marans.

    ummMoustafa - I think you tried to post two pictures, but only one came through, the second.

    If you don't mind I'd like to post a few more pictures of my beauties. This one in particular is the sweetest and friendliest of them all and (i assume she is a female) called Honey because of her colour! (What breed/gender?)[​IMG]

    How old are they? The solid black bird looks female, but there looks to be some red coming in on the wings? If it's the same age as the others, it's male.

    The colorful birds are both males, and they're mixed breed birds.

    agree with donrae - the coloration on the males is spectacular

    He is gorgeous! Pictures don't do justice, they are approximately 6 1/2months pure organic pastured flock right here they are much bigger than other chickens in the area. I assume the all black one is a female but lately have been doubting, its wattle
    Has grown quite a bit and is quite cocky lately lol not sure if that is just a chicken thing!
    It is growing some mahogany coloured tinges apart from the metallic green all over

    All birds are cockerels. Even the one that looks solid black has some saddle and shinny hackle feathers and rounded tail feathers. The last two look like mixes, in fact they all may be barnyard mixes.
