...I was taking a nap...it sounded like a cell phone trill. I heard it 3 times, witnessed it the last time. The darn chick was crowing!! A blue splash maran. I can only have hens. Out of 43 eggs, only 8 hatched. Lost one today. One of the 2 Welsummers I know is also a boy from his markings. And my only other Maran that hatched, a Birchen, I have a feeling is a boy too.
