    5.5 weeks ago we got our first chickens. We only got 2 sexed pullets and the longer time goes on the more I think the Cuckoo Maran is a rooster. His/her comb and waddles came weeks ago and just continue to geat more red and grow. Any chance that it could still be a pullet? We aren't allowed to have roosters where we live. [​IMG]

    'Light' barring and bright red comb at only 5 weeks old means that is definitely a cockerel.
