    We hatched Black Copper Marans this spring. At what age will the cockerels mature and become amorous and begin pestering the ladies?


    Thank you

    Lets see...mornings, afternoons, evenings, before eating, after eating...

    Your boys should be interested around 4-5 months. The hens will not be interested until around 5-6months.
