    They were from McMurray's Ornamental Collection and are going on 8 weeks old.

    Thanks for your help!

    legs look white on the first one which makes it most likely a cuckoo marans and the second looks like an easter egger

    If the ears on the white are coming in red it's probably a White giant. They grow slow so don't expect it to be too big now in comparison to the others. If the legs on the barred on are really white, (hard to tell in that light), then you have a cuckoo marans, otherwise its a BR. If marans, it'd be a pretty light cuckoo, so watch out for wattles to appear!

    Quote:actually, the ears on ee's are red also. I think the best defining characteristic is the comb....what type of comb does the white one have?

    the white one seems to have really thick legs....so possibly an EE/Cornish mix? [​IMG]


    The 1st one is a Barred Rock or a Maran?
