    A friend of mine hatched 4 Golden Cuckoo Marans a little over 2 weeks ago 1 pullet and 3 roo's. He had asked me if I wanted one of the roo's if he hatched one. Well I ended up talking 2 of them. He was asking how they were since we had one that was tiny. Well I sent him a couple of pics and he said it looked like one of them turned out to be a pullet! I know the real light one is a roo but I'm not sure about the darker one!!

    Can anyone looks at these pics and tell me what is what here??

    These are the 4 that he hatched!

    From what I understand, the dark ones are the females. So it looks to me like you have 1 female and 3 males.
