That's a toughy but I am going to guess hen!!!!
I don't see any saddle feathers... I think pullet also!
I say PULLET, Too Dark to be a Roo... , I mean we are looking at a Barred Rock right? We have Barred Rocks and all of them but the roo are dark like this one here... our roo is lighter on the colouring of the feathers...
Quote:Its a cuckoo Marans. IMO, At that young age, I think it could be a roo.
Yep, I agree ... pullet. The cockerel cuckoo marans chicks are lighter colored than she is.
sorry my bad... I just looked here and it appears to be a HEN... just like BR 's the roo for CM is lighter in the feather colouring..
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):
