    About a month ago I purchased 2 Cuckoo Marans pullets from a local who buys large quantities from the hatchery and sells them via local ads. While I paid for 2 CM's, at closer look I see different patterns, comb appearance and leg coloring. I think I may have accidentally been given one CM and one BR, she sells both, plus Dominiques and many other breeds.
    I will post the pictures in a comment below, please tell me what you think.

    Lastly, here is the one I'm confident is a Marans:

    Orange eyes, slate legs and a more scattered, speckled pattern. Also much bolder of a black color in this bird's pattern.

    The first one looks more like a Barred Plymouth Rock. The second one does look like a Cuckoo Marans.
