    The only way to tell at that age is combs, the marans will have single combs, the doniniques will have a littleflat triangle.

    The cuckoos should have pinkish white legs and a straight comb.

    My cuckoos always have pinkish white legs. I suppose if they are hatchery birds they may have darker legs.
