    I got this girl in the Barred Rock bin but others seem to think she's a Cuckoo Maran. Thoughts?? She's about 6 weeks.

    Also, these sweet girls were in the Wyandotte bin. Are they Wyandottes? If so, what color??

    Lastly, are these Light Brahma bantams? They are 5-6 weeks old. 20180420_094839.jpg
    Thank you, from a new chicken mama ❤

    Are the barred birds feet pinkish? Looks like a marans to me but I can't quite tell the color of the feet.

    Your Wyandotte look blue. What color legs? Wyandotte have yellow.

    Brahma look light to me.

    The assessments seem correct to me! Cuckoo Marans, Blue Wyandottes, and Light Brahmas. :love

    Thank you!! This is my first time raising babies. My parents have 14 hens and 4 roos but we never interacted with them. Our babies are spoiled and I may have a few more questionable breeds!!

    Are the Cuckoo Marans a good breed? Ours is a sweetheart. I thought about getting a few more Marans if her temperament is normal for her breed. Since they are in the Barred family, could she be bred with a Barred Rock?

    They are all looking good. What did the brahmas look like as babies? I have full grown ones and saw pictures of what they looked like as babies and they are yellow with the occasional black feathers beginning to grow in. If so, then i am sure you will become a good chicken mother.
