    My new hens, is the Maran male or female as I need to know ASAP. Live in the countryside but concerned that if it is a male and starts crowing that the neighbours will complain. These are my daughters pets. Thanks.

    The larger one on the left definately looks like a rooster to me.

    op is asking the gender of the marans cockerel not the pullet. the cockerel doesnt have a creast and indead looks pure but the pullet to the right is a mix


     
  10. I also agree. To the left is a cockerel and to the right is a pullet. One of my own, Hercules, looks the same.
