    These 4 Marans are 3 weeks old now:

    They are either Wheaten, Splash, or Blue/Black Marans, can you all help me figure out what they are and whether they are pullets or roos?

    Don't know about the colors, but I'd say that the last one is most likely a roo!

    the last is a cockerel and, just going on instinct here, the first is a rooster too, but the other two of pullets
    EDIT: the first to look like wheatens, the third a splash, and the last is blue

    the top 2 are wheaten the next left is splash then right would be the blue (i think)

    Thanks for the help! I was a bit off, I was thinking all of them except the top right were cockerels. I should have said on the first post that the last one is HUGE! and his comb is the most developed of all of them.

    I wouldn't bet against #1 being a cockerel but it should be easier to tell in another couple of weeks.

    I think hdowden is right on the colors. I think you have at least 3 ckls and the top right is most likely a ckl also. The key word here is "I think" so would not make any hasty decisions.
