    I ordered 20 pullet chicks from ideal hatchery. They are 7 weeks old now and no sign of a comb on any one chick. Do you think I got 100% hens or am I jumping the gun? I was actually hoping to get a couple roosters as the odds should have been in my favor to get a couple.

    Marans cockerels do tend to be getting decently large and pink combs at seven weeks. Vent sexing is even more accurate than many people give it credit for (95% for most breeds) so you do have pretty good chances of getting all pullets out of 20 sexed birds. However we can't really know anything about your birds without photos.
