    Our first babies arrives today from MPC: 2 easter eggers, 1 dominique, and 1 cuckoo maran. I'm wondering if there's any way to tell the dominique and cuckoo maran apart as chicks? Both have whitish/yellowish spots on their heads and dark coloring on their legs. One has a larger, more yellowish spot and dark coloring on both legs and part of feet. Appreciate any ideas.

    They should have different combs. The Marans should have pink bottoms on it's feet and a single comb.
