    I can't see wattles on the marans but are the others getting red in their neck? If no, prob a roo as my moms roos red necks came in first.
    Don't know about the middle one but the ee looks like a hen since there is no wattles.

    Quote:Well, I have had one for the longest time with copperish red feathers on her neck since she was little and she is def. a female. very small pale yellow comb..That's why this one is throwing me? So, your Mom's roo's had red come thru on the neck first? hmm..

    And the middle one is an Blue Ameracauna not an EE and they don't have any wattles, so again it's hard to tell [​IMG]

    You need better pics of the Marans. From the angles you are shooting at it looks like it could be 50:50 [​IMG] [​IMG]
