For the most part I know what all of my chickens are now but randomly a Maran that I thought was a hen is starting to make me question if it’s a he or she
It’s comb popped up way later than the other roosters I have and it’s not near as big as the others
My other females don’t really have ones ones that look like this
But if it’s a male why is it’s comb so much smaller than my other roosters
I could tell which ones were turning into roosters while they were still in the brooder
But this ones red comb started showing up while outside in the coop
I posted pics and labeled the ones I’m sure about and the one I’m unsure about

Not sure about the first one; the second one looks to be a pullet; the last one is a pullet, too, I think.
Can you get a closer picture of the first one? Check the saddle feathers and the hackles -- if it's a cockerel, then they'll be pointier than a pullet's, and the saddle feather will be shinier, as well.
Very pretty birds!

Here’s another pic
Also is the americauna next to it a roo?? Got them all the same day So they are all pretty close in age
I plan on selling most of roosters soon just struggling to identify the Maran bc it’s comb is so much smaller than the other roosters but bigger than the other female

Here’s a side by side between the one I’m confused about and one of the other roosters very close to same age if not same age exactly
