If you're looking for an unrelated boyfriend for her, I bet I could find one about the same age. Oh, but you live in town and can't have any roosters crowing, can you?

Yay! I'm so glad we've got a majority vote for pullet! That means I can keep it, yay! But pooh, i was hoping to trade for a silkie. Lol

I don't have marans, but I tend to agree with ChickenLittle - the comb & wattles are kind of big for most 8 week old pullets - I think it's more likely to be a roo (if it is definitely 8 weeks old).

These are my leghorn & RIR pullets at 8 weeks (leghorns usually have large combs):

These are my BRs at 8 weeks (notice the lack of wattles on these chicks & the ones above):
