    My guess is a Roo but i thought id get a few other thoughts on him.

    Kinda bummed because I do not want a Maran roo, i wanted him to be a her just for a unique looking chicken in my flock. I need a Lavender Roo, so if he is unfortunately hell have to go when he gets bigger.

    waited for him to fall asleep in the sun while i was cleaning to get a pic! Lol.

    How old? With a comb that size, that is a cockerel for sure.

    He is roughly 3 weeks or so. Give or take i don't know his exact hatch date to know for sure.

    He is not a Marans. What where the parents? I would guess that he is a rooster.

    I'm almost positive he is a golden cuckoo maran. It's hard to see his feather coloring in this photo because of his frizzle and he has the dot on his head like the maran chicks have. He looks just like the chicks when I look up pictures of them
