My golden cuckoo marans I hatched from pasofinofarm are one week old today. They went for an outing amongst the weeds yesterday in the sun. I am hoping by their color that I have one boy and 6 girls, although that could put a lot of pressure on the one boy. Time will tell.

Beautiful chicks, I would say you got 1 roo and 6 pullets.
I'm planing to get eggs from paso. Just as soon as I get the incubator open for more eggs, or my best broody game hen decides she want to set again.

Oh they are sooo cute.
So what was the roo? hen?

The dark ones are pullets. The light one is a cockeral. Golden Cuckoo Marans can be sexed by their color when they hatch.

That boy won't have any trouble at all. I cull pretty early so I hope it doesn't take time to tell.

I did raise all these and just as I suspected I have 6 pullets and two cockerels... several of my hatches have had this strange ratio but I love it! Glad to see it still works when the eggs are shipped!
