So just found out, and am pretty mad about it, that the 2 BCMs I bought, were incorrectly labled, they just said "Black Marans" on the sign, so when I asked which they were the lady at the feed store pointed to the chart of chickens that they ordered and got in and said "We only ordered these ones!" pointing at the BCMs. So naturally I was like cool, I will take 2 please. Then I strategically bought 2 Cuckoo Marans from another feed store and was thrilled to have both. Well my BCMs turned out with baring pattern so I asked, do BCMs start out that way, and responses of course were no, those are Cuckoo! So turns out I have 4 Cuckoo Marans! But thats ok, they may not lay dark dark brown like BCMs but they are still darker than Welsmmer!
