    I recieved this Frizzled Cuckoo Maran as a pullet, but the older she gets the more rooish she looks, thick legs, large body, mean to the other chicks, and even has a deep voice. Her frizzly feathers make it hard for me to see if she has pointy saddle feathers or sickle feathers. If she would just hold still!!!

    I can get more pictures if that would help.

    How old is this chicken? I almost think I see saddle feathers, but that comb does not make me think roo.

    Yeah, depending on it's age, it looks like a hen to me....

    But, doesn't look like a marans.....at least not pure marans. It has yellow legs.

    I'd say it's a frizzled Barred Rock. The darkness of the feathers looks hen-like, it's just the legs that have me wondering. If it was a roo I think it would be trying to crow by now at 4 months.

    It looks like a hen to me. [​IMG] She is cute!


    I hatched out 6 frizzled EE's and got all frizzled babies, but 5 roos and 1 hen [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I just talked to the lady I got her from and she said the father is a pure Marans and the mother is a Barred Rock frizzle. So my pullet is half Marans. But what ever cross she is, she still looks roo to me and that is what I wanted help with.
    And none of the roos that are the same age are crowing yet, there is no doubt they are roosters.

    Ahh- that's where you got the yellow legs. Was the dad cuckoo marans- or another color?

    Most of my chickens are crossbreds, so for this pullet/roo to be mixed doesn't bother me. I am not looking for a new home for her/him.
    I guess time will tell shortly, either he will crow or she will lay an egg in a couple of months.
