    Here are my 2 marans chicks. They are the only 2 that I have so give me some good news here [​IMG] The only answers allowed are A: 2 pullets, or B: A pullet and a cockerel [​IMG] (I'm going to try and get better pics later...

    These 2 are around a month/month and a half old...

    Ok... That would figure. When I got these 2, I also got 8 salmon Favs - 6 of which were boys [​IMG] [​IMG] One thing that is keeping me hopeful is the fact that one is bigger than the other, and that same one has thicker legs, bigger wattles, and redder wattles/comb. The other one is "thinner", the comb is peach in color, & "her" wattles are barely there. Here are a couple pics just taken:

    #1 Possible pullet:


    #2 Probably a roo:

    Can you hold one of their wings out and take a picture of their wing feathers? Also, try to get side profile pictures of them.
