    We bought a chick from the feed store in with the easter eggers. She is totally black with black legs that are feathered. A bright red pea comb and red earlobes. She looks like an austroplorpe with a pea comb and feathered legs. She has no beard at all.She just started laying really dark brown eggs. Could she be a maran of some sort? I have 30 varieties of chickens and I have never seen one like this!
    Any guesses? I will try to get photos today.

    She looked like this as a baby

    She could be a Marans mix, if the eggs are very dark. My other guess is a Brahma mix, as they have pea combs.
