    Cuckoo Marans mix. One grew a good size tail quickly the others is stubby still. They are 3 weeks old Monday. Both girls? Ike is the black/white, Tina is black/copper, momma was a game hen!

    RIR roo or hen? He is 6 weeks old on Monday. Kinda hoping for a roo but will not be disappointed with a hen at all. He/she is dominate for sure, friendly and the comb is redder then any of the other 3. We call him/her Big Red! The one on the right!

    The rest of the teenagers, I think are all hens.

    I think the Cuckoo Marans mixes are a little too early to tell, but it looks like you might get your RIR rooster. Compared to the pullet next to him/her in the first picture, the comb looks larger and redder.

    I'd say the RIR is a Roo, those feathers do look long.

    Cuckoo anything's are never too early to sex. The barred one is a girl. Same as the black one.

    The Production Red in question probably is a boy.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] I so wanted at least one of the baby RIR's to be a Roo! So he can keep the name Big Red. Guess I need a new name of Ike [​IMG] oh well, wanted them both to be hens. Someone on here said that if a Marans had a white dot on the head it was a boy! Lots of opinions! Thank you all for looking at my pics!
