    I have French Marans and they are a heavy breed, nice big birds, lay eggs through the winter with no added light.... good choice! Can't tell the sex, too young....

    at 3 weeks its not really feathered much [infact are you sure its a pure marans as those legs although feathered are far too yellow]

    my 4 week old is heavely feathered and has a large comb mine is a roo

    so with yours possible pullet but too early to say


    as for size they get big usually

    yours looks very runtish and may stay small
