    She looks nearly identical to the other Marans but clearly has yellow foot pads. Is there a chance that she is an Australorp Cochin cross? First three photos are of her, second two are of the Australorp [​IMG]

    I do see a lot o Australorp, but that can also be a black maran. Black marans also have feathered feet. That is a tricky mix.

    Do you think it makes a difference the she is blue? My Cochin is a white bird and the Australorp totally black whereas the Marans I have are b/b/s
