    Is this an australorp or a black copper marin?
    (Forgive me, my chicken jargon is lacking) She is mostly black with ligher areas on her face, shoulders, and tips of her wings. She has a cream colored chest and belly. Her beak is horn colored, with dark spot on and around her nostrils. Her legs are a dark grey, but her feet are not. She has a few white feathers at the tips of her wings.

    Any feathers on her legs (though not all Marans have feathered shanks)? What color are the bottoms of her feet?

    No feathers on her legs. Not sure what color to call the feet.

    No feathers on the legs. The bottom of the feet are beige? Forgive my terminology... definitely not yellow or orange.
