I thought my cuckoo marans stripy chick was Roo but looking at the 6 week old French blue cooper marans chick in front I'm now thinking it is a pullet as the blue looks to me to look very too like! I'll post some more pictures. What do people think?

Yes it could be.... The egg was dark and speckled and marked a cuckoo marans but that doesn't really mean much!
I'm still holding on to it being a girl!
Denial is the word!

I'd like to see its behavior to tell. If it's a bit skittish I reckon a rooster. But, looks like a female at the moment however my 'gut feel' says Rooster. Sorry :( ;)

Just to answer the questions it is 7 weeks old and has pinkish and brown legs...

Ps if it is a girl I'll call her Doris! Thanks for the name change!

7 weeks old - most definitely a male. Red comb at that age = male.

I just had her out and she sat down on my lap letting me stroke her.... So hopefully that's a good sign

Marans are sometimes tricky with mine the girls tails were upright first so originally I thought they were boys but luckily I have 3 girls 1 boy :)
