    I plan to hatch some buff orpington and cuckoo maran chicks this summer. I was just wondering if there was a way to tell which chick would be a rooster or a hen by the way they these breeds are colored??
    Thanks in advance!!

    Are you hatching them as purebred or are you trying to make sexlinks between the two?
