    Okay, so I have been trying to sex my babies according to you guys. Can you see if I did it correctly and have girls? Thanks so much, Michelle

    Sonje looks like a girl, but it is hard to tell with Heinje. Give it another week, I say.

    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    Actually, to me they both look really dark, and I see no comb or wattle development which gets pretty prominant early on my cuckoos at that age...I could be mistaken, but they both look like girls to me.....The little Roosters are usually several shades lighter than the girls from the same hatch, and pretty easy to compare......Good luck finding out! Enjoy, I love the Cuckoo Marans!

    girls should be black and boys should be silver/gray looking and really noticeably lighter in color. i'd say they r girls. [​IMG]

    Thank you! I paid attention to all of ya'lls sage advice when I picked my two of 25 babies.

    Now, I just have to wait for the eggs!

    Thanks, Michelle
