    I bought what I thought was cuckoo marans chicks and they just started laying but their egg color is really light brown, is it not a cuckoo or is it b/c they just started laying?

    Perhaps both or either. My CM darkened up after a week or two.

    they have the white legs, I have barred rocks also. My buffs lay a darker egg than the cuckoos.
