Boy or girl?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got my cuckoo marans at the end of February, I think that makes him/her 10 weeks old. I'm not sure what gender he/she is.

I'm 85 % certain that he is a cockerel.  -  I think that I can see (with my old eyes) pointy hackle and saddle feathers.

Hackle are the neck feathers. Depending on their shape, some usually mean cockerecockerel. Saddle feathers on a rooster point downward just behind the tail feathers. smile.png
