    Hello, I've been reading several post on sexing the Cuckoo Maran baby chicks. Can someone help me on this? It seems like some say: lg. spot female, little or no spot male. We bought 3 "pullets" so we were told, but I think one might be a rooster or 2 roosters one pullet. We got them at a day old, they are two weeks old in the second picture. But one of them comes at my hand, with their feet flying and pecks, never had that before. Thank you for the help.

    So I have two out of the three babies left. One died very sad. One that I questioned as a hen when small, has grown up, but I still can't tell. And is not crowing but very vocal. But that's nothing unusual I have a couple that are loud. What do you think? This one is Domino. The one in question.

    Thanks Junebuggena, I was worried because Domino's comb is straight up and not laying yet and the other cockoo Maran is laid over and laying.
