    Here's the pics as promised -- these are the beauties I got from Funny Farm. I think that they are both roos but I am not for sure. They are growing like mad though - hatched February 2nd. Let me know what you guys think. Both feather legged -


    First pick is at 5 days old

    [​IMG] They hatched from marans eggs, cuckoos. That I am sure of. Just not sure of the gender. These are my first cuckoo marans ... [​IMG]

    From every picture I've seen so far, these appear too light to be females- but it's a bit hard to tell from your picture. Good luck with them!

    They are feathering out like roos, so I bet you are correct in thinking two boys.
