    I have 3 6wk old Wheaten Maran chicks. A few weeks ago I thought I had 2 pullets and a cockerel. Are the 2 even Wheaten Marans?What do you guys think.

    The first chick is a cockerel, and the second chick is a cockerel. The two chicks with black markings don't really look wheaten, but the buff colored one does.

    Color doesn't look right at all for Wheaten Marans. Two cockerels and a pullet.

    When I purchased the eggs I was told there was Marans, BLRW's, EE's and Silver Laced Chochin/ Maran mix ( cochin hen and maran rooster). These were all yellow/cream when hatched. The RLBW's are easy to distinguish. The EE's all have green legs so that leaves Marans or cochin mix.
