    I ordered straight run cuckoo marans, and STILL can't tell who is who. They all look exactly alike. Nor difference in combs, nothing. I am hoping for tips, or information. Do they take longer than other breeds to determine gender. I have a "female" aracauna crowing at 10 weeks, (guess they can't get it right all the time)

    Cuckoo Marans are easy to sex. If all yours look alike, you must have all one sex. Girls are darker than the boys.
