    Can anyone tell me if this chick is a boy or girl!
    I thought it was a boy but not so sure now!
    Thanks.

    I found this info: "In the Cuckoo Marans, males are lighter in color than females--it is said to be possible to color sex them even as chicks with pretty good accuracy."

    However, I don't know what a female is supposed to look like to know if this one you have is the same color or "lighter".

    Have you tried looking up pics of males and female chicks to see how yours compares?

    Many thanks for all your help. Yes I've looked at photos and researched. It's really hard to tell unless you have another one to compare it to. I guess I'll have to wait for either a cockadoodle doo or an egg!
