Are both of my cuckoo marans pullets or cockerals?

    Hello I'm new to backyard chickens I was wondering if both of my chicks are the same gender, female, or if one of them could possibly be a cockeral, I know that male cuckoo marans will be lighter than females and one is darker than the other and the darker ones behavior is more calm than the lighter one

    Hi and welcome to BYC! If you'd like, you can post some photos of them in What Breed or Gender is This? and folks there should be able to help you out. Good luck! [​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC. You may get more assured gender ID when your chicks are 6 weeks old.

    Best wishes
