    3 week old midnight majesty marans chick purchased as a pullet from TSC. I haven’t seen any obvious roo behaviors yet but the comb is big and the chick has small tail feathers(and some seriously huge feet )... what say you?

    Technically its early to be certain, but single combed cockerels can make themselves known earlier than others.
    Its entirely possible that's a cockerel, in fact... quite likely. You'll know for sure in a few weeks!

    That is a cockerel. And looks more like a black Australorp.
