    & I can pretty much tell that the light ones are from the Light Bramha I have, & that the dark ones are either the Maran & or the Australorp...the father of the birds is a Dominiquer x, with what I don't really know, but here are some pics, & I hope that someone can point out if the Maran or Australorp is the mother:

    Quote:Isn't feather sexing only acurate on certain breeds? Dont think it works on mixes. What Kind of Marans? I'd guess the ones with the white spots on the top of the heads if its a cuckoo marans. Did you hatch them out yourself? If so I would say your roo/hen ratio would be way more then 1:12.
    ETA: Just read your signiture and you do have a cuckoo marans! [​IMG] Oh but NVM though cause dominique's have whte spots on their head as chicks too, so I have no clue!

    I've found three with feathers on their legs, so that tells me that they're the Brahma's chicks, two are black, & one is yellowish brown, with speckles on her...one nearly has all white head with black body, & the last one with feathers on her legs have looks like a maran or a dom...[​IMG]
