Well, watching your progression has helped me identify that I don't have a Marans hen, but that I do have a Langshan hen. I knew it was one or the other, but my Langshan carries her tail completely different from your Marans. I have two other Marans about the same age as yours, but they are both cockerels. I will stay subscribed to the thread and would love to see how Molly finishes feathering out. Standard or not, her feathers are just beautiful!
