Cuckoo Maran Chicks

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by Sherris Backyard Beauties, Jan 11, 2009.

  1. I'm going to be buying some new chicks today, They have Cuckoo Maran Chicks and RiR's for $2 a piece. What should I look for in the Cuckoo's Traits so I know I get all females. This way I don't have to cull any males! Hopefully there is a way to sex them. They are a few days old.

    The females will be darker than the males, it is not to hard to color sex the cuckoos. The males usually have a lighter color and have a little more grey in them.
