    We had 1 Crested Cream Legbar (various sources), 2 Crested Cream Legbar (Rees roos from GFF over C line hens), and 2 Golden Cuckoo Marans hatch at school in the middle of the night. Any ideas in terms of breeds and sexes? The GCMs are supposed to be harder to autosex.

    Chick #1: (UPDATE: Female Crested Cream Legbar)

    Chick #2: Update: Crested Cream Legbar. Maybe a female?

    Chick #3: Update: Golden Cuckoo Marans. Possibly a female despite the white spot on the head?

    #3 and #5 have feathered feet so they must be Marans. Any ideas about their sexes and the Cream Legbar Sexes?
