Hey my marans have dark fronts to there legs does that mean they are both girls?
Marans always have white legs.
my two have a dark stripe down the front though just wondering if it was like what I heard about barred rocks and how the dark stripe in the front of there leg means there girls?
If they're good quality Marans they'll have white legs....no black stripe down the leg. How old are they? When they start getting their feathers you can tell pretty quickly who's a girl and who's a boy......the roosters are much lighter in color than the pullets.
they are about 2 1/2 weeks old but they are poor quality from a hatchery if you have pics of a male and females coloring I could probably tell.
Feathersite has some pretty good pictures of a lot of different Marans.
Yes, hcammack young female Cuckoo Marans have a dark wash down the front of the leg and are generally darker all over.
THanks I have girls YaY there feathers are darker to. 4 confimed girls and 4 to go. thats pretty good for 2 1/2 week olds even though these should all be girls.
Feathersite has chick pictures, as well...you might be able to tell from some of their pics. Congrats on the girls!
