    They all look like pullets to me. The first one you posted (all black) looks like an easter/ olive egger and not a marans though.

    Raven would be my only worry for being a rooster. I'm only saying that because of its stance though. Do you have other photos of raven?

    ETA: I see no feathers that look like a rooster so I think you have all pullets. Raven is definitely some sort of Easter egger though with that head.

    Thank you! If you are positive about age, raven looks like a pullet to me in those added photos.

    Yes, most likely, especially if you have no others who are crowing.


    Awesome! Love fishing!
