    I got two cuckoo marans pullets in October. When I got them they were already totally feathered out, but I didn't get an age. How old do you think they are?

    I know! LOL! She would never harm the chickens though. Its so funny here. We have a HUGE dog house, I can go all the way in and lay down, heck I can set in it and my head doesn't touch the celeing. Anyway, my ten year old beagle sleeps in there every night with a handicapped cat. One of my roosters only "likes" the ducks, and at any time if you go outside you will find a pile of chickens, cats, dogs, and no telling what else sleeping together!

    Quote:Partridge Rock looks nothing like a barred bird.

    Dominique: Rose comb, yellow legs, barring is uneven.
    Cuckoo Maran: Single comb, white legs.
    Barred Rock: Single comb, yellow legs.

    They look to be about 6-7 months old.

    Back to the original question. Are the CMs laying?

    They are not laying, but their faces have reddened up quite a lot in the past couple of weeks.
