    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.
