    Hi everyone. I am new here and would love some help. When I got these 2 black chicks I was told they were cuckoo Marans. I was also told they were 5 days old at the time and there is no way they were that young so I can't trust what they told me. Anyways, they are black with white feathers coming in around their neck and chest. One of them has 1 white feather on each wing. Sorry the pictures aren't that great- it was the best I could do. I would also love to know what you think about gender and age. Thank you so much!!!!!![​IMG]

    Definitely not Cuckoo Marans, I can't say what breed they are (I'll need better photos) but I think you have a pullet and a cockerel (again I'm not positive because I need better photos).

    I think you have a cockerel and a pullet. Not sure about breed. Probably around 6-7 weeks.

    So far no guesses on the breed. I would love a guess or two to get me started for researching. I have no clue!

    Honestly I think you have mixes, I'm trying to decide what kind of mix though. [​IMG]
