Hey all,

We got our first chickens in June. Two Vorewerk's, a Rhode Island Red and a Copper Black.

The Rhode Island turned out to be a boy, I'm hoping Penny, our Copper Black is a girl.

what do you think?

I can't see the bird well enough to give a guess. Maybe someone else can see it better than I can.

Can you post a head close up and a side profile?

I'm leaning hen as Robin is. Nice bird. It's an English Copper Black Maran since there are no feathers on the feet, (which would be French). There are three color types of Black Maran, I'm leaning Brassy Black because in Marans the feathers have a moderate sheen which was historically bred from the Golden Necked Black. But at five months, it's still young and hard to say for sure. Great birds with a good temperament. They don't often like a ton of human handling.

Definitely a pullet. The roosters have a lot of copper showing on neck and shoulders by that age. Should start laying in a few weeks.
