    Interesting - That is the lowest amount of points I've ever seen on a Marans comb.

    No, he's a Black Copper Marans. [​IMG] It is just that most have one too many points or just the right amount. But he, I'd say, has 4 points. Never seen that before.

    I love his hackles.... They aren't all uniform, but they are pretty.
