    Identical to an australorp with lightly feathered feet. French black maran? Lays brown eggs but not chocolate color. Bad hatchery quality?
    Don't have pictures yet.

    Quote:Finally someone with a more sensible answer. (sorry folks) - Cochins would stick out like a sore thumb to have heavy feather shanking, a big round rump, a rather round body. . .

    Langshans have lighter feathering and especially hatchery quality ones will look a lot like Australorps.
