    One of my 6 chicks is a cookoo marran. I cannot remember which one the guy told me is it? Do they have big fluffy cheeks? I will try and take individual pictures this evening after my kids go to bed. :) I have 2 New Hampshire Reds (straight run), 1 black wyndotte, 1 splash wyndotte, 1 easter egger, and 1 cookoo marran. Here are the pictures I have. I think they are only 1-2 weeks old.

    No they do not have puffy cheeks. The black wyandotte and maybe the easter egger can be mistaken for the cuckoo maran.

    Im not an expert by any means but I would say Rosie is actually the EE and chip is the maran, like I said im no expert, they are precious at any rate :D

    Anyone else have an idea? I cannot find a picture of the cookoo morran anywhere. Anyone have one they would love to share?

    Cuckoo coloring is like barring, in that the chicks have a white or creamy head spot. That first pic is your Cuckoo Marans. The head spot is nice and tight, that bodes well for a female. Males have large, irregular headspots.
