    Hello There all you lovely chicken owners,
    I'm Suzy and I am new on here and reasonably new to chickens.
    I have a load of chickens I bought from a farmer when they were tiny and he 'donated' a load that I now suspect may be cockerals.
    I am not overly worried as love them all to bits and find them a great source of interest and fun.But they all have girly names and I feel I ought to know what sex they are seeing as I own them! I have looked at so many photos of different chicken sexes on the internet I am now goggle eyed and more confused than ever!
    Could anyone tell me if the chicken in my picture is a 'maran' and a boy or girl/?
    I have four of these but two look like this one and they have huge feet and just started getting those fluffy tail feathers.
    They are 3-4 months old ( from what I have worked out) don't crow, but make the same noises as the definite lady ones I have.
    Thank you in advance for your advice.
    Suzy from Lincolnshire.[​IMG]
