    I got a few chicks from Tractor Supply. I know the two in the middle of this pic are easter eggers and the one in front is an australorp. The one in the back was in a bin labeled "french marans" She does not have feathered legs. Is she a cuckoo marans? 20180915_150644.jpg

    Nope. She is most likely a Black Australorp.

    No feathers on legs. I'm wondering if she is a cuckoo marans? Screenshot_20180925-214132_Gallery.jpg

    If the one in back is an australorp, is the one in front a marans? Maybe I'm mixed up about who came out of what bin? I bought 1 RIR, 4 easter eggers (labled ameraucanas ;)), 2 buff orps, 2 australorps, & 2 "french marans"

    It does have barring on the wings. So it's either a Barred Rock, or a Marans. Sometimes with hatchery stock, the feathers on the legs come in later.
    Also, your 'australorp' is a Gold Laced Wyandotte.

    Wow. I bought two "australorps" and two "french marans" haha. Well, I really wanted a GLW. I'm not complaining. It is exciting to see what feed store chicks grow up to be.

    If her legs are pink, you have a Cuckoo Marans. :) Yellow would equal Barred Rock. Most, but not all Marans, have feathered legs.

    Also, as another poster pointed out, your Australorp is indeed a Golden Laced Wyandotte.

    I think most hatchery Cuckoo Marans dont have feathered legs, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them label anything Marans as “French marans” at TSC, so I’m voting Cuckoo Marans. If you can post a photo of the bottom of their feet.
