Black Cuckoo Maran - which gender?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

 

Hi All!

 

I am new to this chicken business, and 2 months ago I got 6 baby chicks. There are a couple that I question if they're cockerels or pullets, and I'm hoping you guys can help me out.

 

This is Margaret Hatcher, our Black Cuckoo Maran. She is by far the largest of them all, is the one to call the other girls in for bedtime, and her comb is slightly bigger than the rest. However, it is not very red nor is it as prominent as other photos I've seen of BCM roosters. 

 

I can try to provide more photos later if this one isn't good enough.

 

Crossing my fingers...

Cute name; and she can keep it, for Margaret Hatcher is a pullet. :o)

Pullet.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."

I hope I'm wrong...I trust your guys' judgement but "her" growth is just so different from the rest, and her comb is much larger than the rest too
