Question about Marans

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Are all Marans supposed to have feathers on their legs?
post #2 of 3
No, there are both feather legged and non-feather legged varieties. The feather legged strain is sometimes referred to as a "French Marans" whereas the non-feather legged is often called the "American Marans" or simply "(non French) Marans."
