    The last pic is the oldest, the first is the younger one. Any ideas on sex/ ages?

    They are cuckoo marans btw.

    It is kind of early to tell but my guess would be pullets. No idea of their age though.

    Going by the 7 barred rock chicks I got this spring (all of which were male except 1), I'd say those are pullets. The first one looks to be about 2 weeks old and the 2nd one 3 to 4 weeks old. I don't know if the cuckoo pattern in marans comes in the same as the barring on barred rocks (with the females being darker), so I could be completely off base, but they sure do look like the BR chicks I have.
