I have two cuckoo maran chicks, and at about 6 days old they are looking distinctly different. Is all the white on one an indicator its a male, or just that she has odd wings? Maybe mild frizzling? It's really hard to get them to stand still to get good pictures, but on the one with more white the wings curl in and up instead of out and flat against the body. The other chicks pull at its wing feathers a lot, which might be making it worse. If so maybe I should separate it? That seems a bit harsh though for such a little one.
