    I'm 100% on the white sussex being a hen, but can anyone tell on the Marans? She/he just acts different to me, seems like the rounded feathers are going on but other then that? They are just now 5 months old. Thanks to all :)[​IMG]

    I hope so :) Thank you, we can't have the roos in town, and I hate to have to get rid of any of my chickens :(

    yes its a pullet...if it was a cockerel you would have known at about 1-2 months of age as the comb and wattles would be very very noticable and at 5 months its comb and wattles would be huge compaired to your little girls
