Sexing Ameraucanas and Cuckoo Marans

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Is there a reliable way to tell what genders I have of my Ameraucanas and my Cuckoo Marans.  My chicks are 4 or 5 days old now.  I got 8 out of 9 roosters last year on silkies and black austrolorps.  Was just hoping I didn't end up like that again and if there is a good way to tell.

male cuckoo marans chicks are supposed to be significantly lighter in color than females (like a silver instead of black)
