    What gender is this? And, where did it get that white wing feather?

    Looks just like our two Cuckoo Marans pullets when we bought them at 6 weeks old.

    Thank you everyone! I searched and searched and couldn't find anything about stray white feathers. Good to know :)

    I have a pullet who used to look just like that. She had white in her first set of wing feathers, but it is mostly gone now, only one spot remains that you can't see unless you fan her wing open.
