    This is my cockoo Maran that is 3 1/2 weeks old. I am a newbie but I feel like it's a rooster. What do you think?

    Far too young to be sure, but the size of the comb and wattles are suggestive of a cockerel. If you can post updated photos in 7-9 weeks, we'll be able to help you a lot more.

    I highly doubt that is a pullet but I'd still wait a couple more weeks to be 100%.[​IMG]

    Absolutely no need to wait a few weeks, he is without a doubt a rooster. Impressive combs that are red based, that's definitely a rooster. Pullets' combs won't start pinking up until about 6-8 weeks old.

    Good luck with your little fella! :)
