    I recieved 4 hatching eggs that were labeled Marans X 2 hatched out black like cuckoo Marans the other 2 hatched out 1 yellow the other yellow with silver in it. The 2 odd color ones have muffs. they all came from brown eggs. The black ones hatched out of darker brown and the others were a medium to light brown. What do you think? I wonder if maybe the roo was Marans and maybe one of the moms was an EE?

  2. I think your right about the silvery yellow chick. Being a EE. [​IMG]

    the darker eggs I think were probably from a cuckoo marans hen. Those two bottom chicks are going to be cuckoo colored and I'd bet they hatched from the darker eggs. [​IMG]

    Yes the black ones were from the darker eggs. I hve tried to email the lady that sent them but no response. I really like them all and am not mad that the other 2 are not Marans just would like to know what they are. I sure am leaning toward EE's on the other 2. They are all so cute.

    they dont look much like EE's.
    do they have muffs?
    I have a marans and an EE, but they dont look like either one.
    Maybe it was a mix-up
    wait until some feathers start coming in and post more pictures then.
