    I'm trying to identify my cuckoo marans I received from Cackle. I also ordered the rainbow layer special. I can't figure out if I have barred rocks, astrolorps and which ones are actually my cuckoos. [​IMG]

    I was hoping some of you may have chick pics of the above breeds. I've looked at the Cackle website but I'm still confused!

    I think this one is Astrolorp--

    I'm going to take new pics tonight as today is their 1 week birthday--and they have grown so much!

    TIA,

    the first baby doesn't look like my australorp chicks, which have mostly yellow faces. i've seen ones with darker faces than mine have, but not the whole head black like that. it's very cute!
    here's a picture of two of mine to demonstrate:

    the second one looks like a barred rock and the third one looks like a cuckoo marans. is that possible?

    Wow, I didn't know that the wing barring was an indication of a marans roo. [​IMG]

    Now, I'm going to have to go home and see who all has that barring! I ordered 6 so I'm hoping at least 3 are pullets. I intend to keep just 1 roo for now so will have to re-home any others.

    Here's a group shot from last night.

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    The last two pics look like barred rock. They have the yellow spots on their heads. So cute!
