Hi there,
My chicks are now 8 weeks old and I wondered if anyone could help to confirm their breed.
The black one we think is a french black copper marans. We have thought it is a rooster but we are not entirely sure so any confirmation or other thoughts would be great. We can't keep a rooster where we live but want to be absolutely sure before we get rid of him(?).

The ginger one is a hybrid and we think it is a pullet but any help towards possible breed/s would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance,
Rachel

For 8 weeks old, the black one has a pretty big comb. Can you post a picture of his/her tail? Then we could see if sickle feathers are developing. The other one looks like a pullet, though. This is a thread showing 9 wk old black copper maran pullets. See the size difference of their combs compared to yours? That's why I think you may have a rooster. https://www.backyardchickens.com/th...k-copper-marans-gender-guesses-please.893212/
