    I hatched two FBCM eggs and am pretty sure one is a girl and one is a boy. They are two weeks old. What do you think? The male is quite a bit bigger and has much more feather and tail development going on as well as the much larger comb.


    Can I be certain enough with the male to get rid of it now? I can't have roosters and think it might be easier to find it a home at a young age vs a few months old in the dead of winter. WE also wont become as attached to him either. Thanks for your comments.

    Ok I don't have Marans (yet) but at 2 weeks old that is a very big comb. I think its safe to say its a cockerel.

    I'd bet money on 1 pullet (left) and 1 roo (very inquisitive right)
