So this is Henrietta. When we got her as a day old last April I was a newbie. I was told that she was a cuckoo maran. When I noticed feathers on her legs, I researched the breed and saw that this could be from the french line, so didn't really think much more about it. As she grew, she got fluffier and fluffier. I still was thinking she was a maran. Her eggs aren't extremely dark but are a 4 on the maran scale. So we just got 11 new chickies a week ago. One is a black Cochin we named Penny. 2 are Cuckoo Marans without the feathers on their feet. TODAY, I suddenly had a revelation... Henrietta is a Cuckoo Cochin. So I am asking for opinions from those more experienced and knowledgeable than I, what do you think?
