    I have 6 cuckoo Marans that are suppose to be pullets. We all know how that goes. I believe 2 are Roos! Anyone have an opinion? They are 5 weeks old now, will be 6 weeks on Wednesday. If I keep a Marans rooster and Breed to my Ameracuanas will they still make an olive egger, since he is a cuckoo Marans? Thanks for any and all responses.

    That Marans is definitely a cockerel. I think a few of the Easter Eggers are cockerels too. I see dark red on the shoulders...

    Also known around here as 'red patches of death'. Almost always a sure sign of a cockerel.

    The Marans in the back looks like a cockerel. I think the EE in front of him is also male. can you get a comb shot of that bird?
