    Are you sure they're cuckoos? Mine never have that much white on them as chicks.

    I don't know! They're feathered legged for sure. I got them from Pop57 on here today, and he has adult Marans...

    Well 2 is a boy...the others probably pullets, but it's a little early to tell for sure don't you think! [​IMG]
    They are some of the prettiest chickies I've ever seen...the markings are so cool...hope they turn out to be beautiful birds for you.

    I think, based on comparing them with the ones in my brooder right now, that 2 and 4 are roos.

    It has been my experience that if they have a distinct round yellow spot on the head, they are likely males. [​IMG]

    I can't wait to see how they feather out!

    I thought #4 looked roo-ish just based on the expression and stance in that picture. We're hoping for at least two pullets, since two of the marans belong to TubbyChicken and two are mine, that way we could each have a pair.
