    So I just finished hatching my 22 eggs, and I have one that has these gorgous little white spots by it's eyes, I know I had two Cuckoo Maran Eggs in there, but I also had 15 mystery eggs too, along with some RIR's (Yes I know which ones are the RIR's, LOL). What do you think?

    It looks alot like the ones I think are my Marans. Mine are feather-legged Cuckoo Marans, so I'm fairly certain which ones they are. Mine do have white on top of their heads, but look like yours otherwise.

    Hmm, I think my chicks that have more white with the black must be the Cuckoo Marans, Hmm I wonder what my Chick with the white spots by the eyes is?
