    I ordered 20 pullets. I know for sure that 1 of my Cuckoo Marans is male , I heard him crow already. I have a question on 3 of my 5 EE that were supposed to be pullets. One red colored and 2 gold colored just alike. They are 8 weeks old now.

    The golds are pullets,the red may be a cockeral...does it's feathers look shiny,change clor in the sunlight? Look for pointed saddle feathers on it's rump. Rounded means girl,pointed means boy.

    Quote:I went out and looked. I didn't notice any change in color in the sun. I could'nt really tell , but I think the feathers had a rounded look to them. Thanks alot for your help.
