    These are two of the Marans I received in my straight run order. I think I have at least 2 boys and 4 girls. Am I right??

    Thanks!

    You can feather sex the Cuckoo's Marans. Do you remember which ones had an obvious white spot on the top of their head when they were dayolds? Also the hens are a darker color.Feathering on the head,and down the neck on the roo's are a white or silver feathering. Not to hard to tell. That's how i knew what mine were. 1st pic roo 2ond pic hen [​IMG]
