Cuckoo Marana hen or rooster?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, so I'm a new official user to this site and have a questions about my cuckoo Maran. she/he is about 8 months old and is not laying or crowing. I was told that it was a hen when I first purchased her but now I'm not to sure. Any help figuring it out would be appreciated.

Thanks for the help

Cockerel

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I was thinking it's a cockerel to but there is no crowing or other signs that I can tell other than the looks.

Looks like a cockerel to me as well.  Those look like sickle and saddle feathers

That's a cockerel. Hens simply do not get those long, pointy feathers on the neck or base of the tail.

Cockerel,  also notice a difference between his two legs .  Do you have an alpha rooster?  In deference to him  lower rung cockerels   usually don't have the nerve to crow and get beaten.
