    Went to the feed store with my nephew and we got chicks. We ended up with 4 Cuckoo Marans (and other breeds) and he picked the two he wanted to keep and the other two went home with me. I got a better look at them and was wondering is there any difference between the ones with colored breasts and non colored? All four have little spots on their heads. Just hoping they are all females. [​IMG] I am sure it would be hard to tell at 2 days old. Keeping my hopes up.

    Thanks J. They kept chirping so I would pick them up and cup them in my hand but I had to sleep sometime, so I gave them my stuffed rooster. They were trying to burrow under it. Very cute. Have to enjoy the baby stage as they surely do grow fast and will be out the door soon and with the big girls.

    Kera, I just numbered the pictures. Are you thinking that #2 is a Roo?

    or my picture #4 is a Roo?

    I should have numbered them when I first posted. OOps​
