    I bought 5 Black Marans pullets from Estes, but I forgot (dummy me!!!!) to look at their legs before I put them under the hens to mother to ensure they all actually had feathering. Now I can't tell the Marans from the other 7 black chicks that are Black Langshan-fathered hybrids with BA or Langshan moms. There are a few that don't have single combs so I'm sure they are some of my hybrids.

    The Marans are all black in the face while the BA cross has red wattles and combs
