I've joined back yard chickens

to hopefully get some advice on what people think the sex of my newly hatched cuckoo marans chicks are.

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. You're Cuckoo Marans are too young to sex at this point. I would suggest posting their pics again on our What Breed or Gender is This? section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this after their barred feathers come in. Typically females will have dark barring, males will have light barring. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting pullets.

Welcome to BYC!

x2 on @Michael OShay 's advice. Those are sweet looking chicks you have and the egg is a beautiful color.

Good luck to you and if you have questions, feel free to ask.

Nice to have you join us!

Hi :welcome from Yorkshire UK

Glad you could join the flock! What adorable chicks you have there that is a lovely pic of them. I'm more than sure you will get lots of help sexing them when they are a little older in the what breed gender section. Sorry but I can't help you on the barring as I've never kept this breed. Drop by the UK thread, there maybe other chicken keepers near to you. Here is the link > https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/655508/uk-member-please-say-hi/0_20

Wishing you the very best of luck with your chicks in the future and enjoy BYC :frow

Hi and welcome to our flock!

Glad you could join our community! You have some adorable chicks and a beautiful egg. Unfortunately, it is too young to accurately sex your chicks. I suggest posting more photos when they are feathered in more (around 4-6 weeks, and 8 is better) for some good guesses on gender. I'll be happy to help sex them when they get older!

Good luck with your lovely chicks and welcome to BYC! I hope you enjoy BYC as much as we all do.
