    As you can see from the pictures below this Cuckoo Marans is light gray on top and almost white on the chest. All the others are dark. Is this a CM or not? Any ideas?

    The very lightest colored ones are usually male. I had 4 we processed last fall.

    I read where the roosters were lighter color, too. Out of 17 this is the only real light colored one that I have. You would think that there would be at least one more.

    They are just one month old, so we will see. I hope I only have one rooster.
