I got some eggs, via my cousin, there were a mix of colours, but the ones that hatched all came out of white eggs. My cousin had mentioned that his friend keeps white star, buff (but I don't know what kind of buff) and also marans. I've googled pictures of striped chicks, and come across french marans (duckwing). I'd be grateful for any opinions on what these might be, and also what might be useful to look out for in terms of guessing gender as they get older. Thanks.
