    This feather baby is (I think) a Maran/ Olive egger mix but im not sure... What breed do you think this is? Also, Rooster or Hen? Im thinking Hen! But your Chicken Pros might know better. Thanks for your help!

    You could be right on your parentage, meaning it's a mixed breed bird. The white skin points to Marans, while the beard and modified comb says Ameraucana or EE. Nothing's screaming rooster at this point, how old is the bird?

    Probably a mixed breed. I'm leaning towards pullet, but it is rather sturdily built.
