    Can anyone give me their thoughts on what sex my Marans might be? They are 4 weeks old on Saturday.

    I'm hoping that the grey one is a hen, and I think one of the black ones is a cockerel. But it's all guessing really!

    its so hard to tell right now. Maybe you could take some pics outside where it will be easier to see the birds and their tailfeathers.

    Sorry I know the pics aren't great, got my 6 year old to take them on my phone while I held the chicks. And then had to crop the pics so not surprised they're not great. Thought it was worth a try though. Will try again tomorrow!

    Another couple of pics, still not great will try for more later. But in the meantime thought I'd post these. They are both of the grey one.

    Anyone want to guess? I want the grey one to be a hen as I've decided I want to keep it (so it's probably a roo lol)
