We picked this rooster up a few months ago, mid molt, along with a few hens. He didn't come with any pedigree, but we didn't ask either. The lady was moving and had to get rid of all of them. He molted out and now he is beautiful. Today on Craigslist a saw a rooster very similar to him being advertised as a Marans. What do the BYCers think? Do I have a diamond in the rough or just a backyard special? He gets to stay regardless as he has a lovely temperament.
