    I would wait a few more weeks. Most boys show those pink combs by 6-8 weeks.

    No obvious roos at the moment. :) Another few weeks, and we should know for sure whether there are any more boys in the lot!

    Ok I knew it was usually 6 or so weeks but my wheaten turned boyish so early I wasn’t sure if that’s typical for marans. I’ll post some pics in a few weeks!

    I must say, my 7 Marans pullets showed about the same amount of comb at 6 weeks. It's very likely they're all girlies....we just want to be absolutely sure. :)
