We have just hatched these 5 cuckoo maran chicks - or at least that's what we were told the hatching eggs were. But we seem to have 2 blonde cuckoos in the nest! Any thoughts on what they may be, or is it too soon to tell? I am assuming that they are not cuckoo marans!!! Based on what little we know about cuckoo marans we think that we could have 2 boys and a girl (one slightly darker in colour, one blurry white patch rather than two patches, two with white wing tips beginning to come through . . .). And one has darker coloured legs than the other two, if that's relevant. Do you think that we are right? Photos taken when they were only a couple of days old, they are now about 10 days old so may try to get some better individual pictures to show them off better.
