I've been trying to figure out if my three marans are roosters or pullets. I can't remember when I got them, but I think they are about 3 months old now...maybe a little less. I think they hatched around the end of March? The one on the left has two identical twins. The one on the right is the only 100% for certain rooster. He is starting to crow, he makes a little alert noise when the girls get upset and runs to see what the problem is, and so on. For the one on the left and its two twins... Tail feathers--? They don't look exactly like the rooster but they also look rather droopy for a pullet tail. Neck feathers--I can't tell, the barring throws me off. Comb/wattles--red and somewhat large, but not as huge or as rapidly growing as the rooster. Legs--seem to be the same thickness as the rooster Personality--none are pre-crowing, they make little pullet-ish noises when you hold them while the rooster almost honks and has a deep voice Coloring--For Marans, all four of my birds are light...none are dark like pullets. They are all the exact same shade including the rooster. So what do you think? I am getting ready to trade three of them for (hopefully!) pullet chicks of the same breed, but I want to be sure that they are definitely roosters before I do that. We are kind of attached to them, I'm sad to say goodbye! They are such sweet chickens.
