I have been raising marans for approximately 1 year. I like the idea of having something different and these beautiful chickens caught my eyes. Right now I have a flock of 9 black copper hens, 1 blue hen, 1 splash, 1 blue copper rooster, 1 splash rooster. Many chicks coming from these birds as well. All have the featherd legs. Here are some pics.
