    SOOO do I have a roo and a hen??? The one I think is a hen acts more like a rooster and the rooster acts more like a hen!!!! I heard that you can tell what sex a maran is by the color. I have two, one must be about 10 weeks old and the other about 8 weeks old. The younger one seems lighter, but I might just be losing my mind.

    Wait a little longer and get some better pics if you can. Hatchery cuckoos don't always follow the "color rules." [​IMG]
