    I got this pullet in a variety pack, my first maran.

    She/he's getting some comb.

    Is this a roo, or can it still be pullet with this comb?

    Crappy phone camera, will try to give you quantity if not quality pics.

    Hard to tell. How old is it? Usually easier to tell the sexes at 4-5 weeks when you have pullets to compare at the same age. Cockerels will look taller and skinnier to a pullet by that age. It does not have much leg feathering for a BCM.

    It's too young to be certain, but I would guess cockerel based on that comb.

    About 3 weeks old. I have no other's from it's brood to compare it to. I did get a few other chicks that are within 1 week of it of varying breed.

    I'm also going to guess male. I'm not saying that for sure yet though.

    Pretty sure that's a cockerel.
