    I have Marans that are 8 weeks old and one that is 16 weeks old. I'm going by the tail too. Here's my guess, #1 cockerel, #2 & #3 pullets. #3 might be a cockerel only if the comb is pinker than what is showing in the pic. Hope you get what you're wishing for! [​IMG] Theresa/Sunnydale Farm

    I will post pics when they are 2 weeks older & try to get a close up of their head. I hatched 3 white leghorns and 2 are cockerels! Boy do they have some head gear at 4 weeks old!!

    yeah the leghons show early. HUGE combs on those birds. I can usually spot leghorn roos by 2 weeks old.
