    Can they be sexed as day/week olds? I hatched out 4 of them and they are noticable different in color...some silver and some more goldishy.
    Thanks,

    Are they the silver cuckoo? I can guess correctly about 70% of the time as day olds. The males are usually a lighter color then the females and the females are more likely to have black going down their legs.

    Based on what you've said I probably have 2 of each sex then [​IMG] Great, that'll work for me.
