    This is my "pullet" whose around 18 week old, i think CM, what do you folk think on the breed and more impotantly the gender?

    This is "her" between 10-12 weeks:

    No rooish behavior or no eggs, got really chunky and the comb bigger in the last 2 weeks, comb leans slightly to one side.

    I can't see any saddle feathers and with the comb and wattle size and color at 18 weeks I think pullet. Not a breed expert but CM looks close to me as my BR has softer feathering. [​IMG]

    Looks like a girl to me but don't know enough to tell if it is a CM.

    I would say she has a ways to go. Her comb and wattles are not very big yet.

    Cuckoo Maran pullet. [​IMG] I'd guess at least two more weeks before she starts laying...

    Edited to change "Copper" to "Cuckoo." [​IMG]

    Quote:I agree. Cuckoo marans due to the barring type and white legs. And pullet, as she's getting close to laying her comb and waddles should get larger and redder. Start keeping an eye on those nest boxes and the floor... just in case [​IMG]
