    I grabbed what I thought were 5 cuckoo marans and when I got home, this gal was in the box. I think she is a cochin, I'm just not sure. Thanks all!

    You're gonna keep her, aren't you? What a cutie!

    I recommend you trot on over to the breeds forum and ask. Those guys are real experts over there.

    It looks like it has feathered feet. I dont think cukoo's have feathered feet. I know all my cochins do.

    French marans have feathered feet.
