Looking at them, how can you tell the difference? I was sold two pullets at the beginning of last year. I was sold them as Cuckoo marans, but i am unsure now because I am having trouble telling the difference when I look at photos. Can you tell me what I am looking for (other than egg color as neither have begun laying, although they act like they might soon). It's too late in the evening for me to go get photos, but they have the black and white bodies, single red comb (not all that big either) ... i can put up photos tomorrow morning if it'll help.
