    Hello all! I just hatched out my first batch of golden cuckoo marans, and if I've read correctly golden cuckoos can be sexed as hatchlings? I'm thinking there is 2 males and 3 females... let me know what you guys think! [​IMG]

    3 females darker towards the top, 2 males lighter towards the bottom?

    Male Left, Female Right?

    I think you're right. The brown ones are pullets. These are great chickens. I especially loved my rooster chicks as they were very tame.
