    Upright stance, prominent comb ...I'm going to say male. He's gorgeous though.

    Would you be interested in selling him? Maybe I can talk my hubby into it, after all I've always wanted a Marans;)

    Absolutely. My Roos usually go on Craigslist to find a home - I'll PM you when he's done brooding so you don't have to brood him alone. If your hubby says no, I'll post him on CL then. :)
