    I have four 9 week old BCMs. I have never had marans before so I am looking for imput as to gender. I am fairly certain one is a pullet and one is a boy, but the other two I just don't have enough experiance to be able to tell. So here they are~


    Here is the one I am pretty certain is a roo on the right, the other one has me guessing

    I am assuming the one in the middle of the picture is a pullet. The other two the waddles are a bit bigger and pinker.

    My theory is I either have 3 boys 1 girl or the other way around. I hate waiting to figure it out!

    #4 looks to be the only pullet in the group. Enjoy all the boys! I have one FBCM roo and three pullets, I just love my boy. He is very well behaved and very nice to the ladies.
