Are these really cuckoo Maran chicks? Any idea on gender?

    There are two of these from a S/R. Supposed to be cuckoo Maran. The pics are of one of them, since they are identical. 4ish weeks old. 20180321_213904.jpg 20180321_213924.jpg 20180321_213931.jpg 20180321_213926.jpg

    Look like silver laced Wyandotte to me. That first one looks like a rooster with that comb.

    Nope. Those are Silver Laced Wyandottes.
    These are all Marans. The black ones with a white spot on the top of the heads are the Cuckoos. DSCN0764.JPG

    Silver Laced Wyandottes.
    Please post pics of your chicks's combs, (other than the first one. He's a boy) at seven weeks. Thanks!

    Here are more pics, in daylight. It was hard to keep them still to take pics. There are two. The second one seems to have the same comb, only slightly less red and defined.
