Ok I know crowing is a sign of being a rooster, but this hen does not look at all like a rooster. I bought 3 chicks on Mother's Day from a breeder. There were supposed to be two blue Marans hens and one splash Marans hen. The splash is not a splash and is an oliver egger I think and is definitely a hen. The two blue Marans look identical, except one has feather on it's legs and one does not. Combs are exactly the same size as are their bodies. No wattles have developed and they are now about 3 months old. However, the clean legged one has taken to trying to crow. I don't understand this. Could it still possibly be a rooster even though it looks like a hen? I never had Marans before, so this is a learning experience for me. I have looked at as many pictures of 2 to 3 month old Marans roos as I could find and my hen does not look like that, so what is with the crowing? We did have one hen a while back who tried to crow, but she sounded more like a tire deflating and it was quite hilarious. This Marans hen has a pretty strong err err going on. Here is her picture. And another one. This is her sister who is the same age and does not try to crow. If it were not for the different legs, I would have a hard time telling them apart. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated as I cannot keep a roo. I am desperately trying to get some Marans in my flock and I was hoping my little trio would be a good start. However, I am already down one due to the one being an olive egger and not a blue Marans. Thanks so much!
