I just set some BBM, looked for pictures or a thread on here, and most are of BCM.  Anyone have pictures of what a baby chick will look like, then a hen and roo?  Thanks!

There is.  smile And I actually saw a couple of the roosters, but no hens.  Will have to look through the Marns thread again, or maybe even Bev Davis Marans.  tongue

Can anyone help me identify my Marans rooster color and type. He was bought from a breeder who sold him as a blue copper Marans. His color is wrong for that, but I am wondering if he is another type altogether... maybe a blue birchen Marans?? Can he be responsibly bred with a blue copper female to produce babies, if so what would their offspring be?? All information about him is greatly appreciated. Below are some pictures of him now at about 22 weeks and some from about a month and a half ago below those. I think he is gorgeous and he is super sweet.

Here is a picture we took at Monet's Giverney  outside of Paris.  I've been trying to identify as well.  A local Atlanta Maran breeder told me t is a rare Silver/Blue Maran.   To me the tell tale is the blonde hackle rather than the normal copper ones.  I hope this helps .
