Maran cockerels or pullets?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got three straight run marans, 2 blue and 1 black. I was hoping for pullets but I'm starting to think they are cockerels. Especially the black one. I'll attach two pictures of each and I'll appreciate any help I can get!

They look like pullets to me.
Four lovely hens : An Exbattery Hen, a Lavender Araucana, a Wheaten Marans and a Gold Laced Frizzle Polish
Two dogs and four cats.

No one's screaming cockerel but it's early to be sure. About 5-6 weeks is usually good to tell Marans males.
