    Hello! my first post and my first chickens!

    Got 5 chicks about 15 days ago, the Maran was the oldest got to be about 3-4 weeks old now. hes looking like a boy or it could be that hes just more developed idk.

    Based off of the large comb and wattles, I think that your Marans is a cockerel.

    I agree, that's a male.

    Marans definitely looks like a cockerel--a pullet wouldn't have such large/red comb/wattles at this age.
