Newer Chicken Mom - What did I buy?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Bought this little lady at an auction as a rare speckled orpington pullet. I am really new to chickens but she doesn't match what I Google. Thinking maybe a black cuckoo orpington? Not a great picture. She has some long, skinny feathers on her neck and all around her rump (not saddle feathers). I describe her as very fluffy or messy feathers. She is very soft and has flesh colored feet. Ideas? And is she a pullet? I don't know her age.

Looks like either a Cuckoo Marans or Barred Plymouth Rock.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I can't see its legs, but if they are white (or pinkish), its a Cuckoo Marans (which I suspect is the case looking at the loose barred pattern). However if the legs are yellow, it's a Barred Rock.
