    It was hard to get a close pic but I thought she was a black sex link but yesterday I noticed her lightly feathered feet. Her legs are black. She does have some copper in her jacket but not much , not like my other French Copper Maran.

    Not a Langshan, I am thinking she's an Australorp but then theres the lightly feathered feet, so I think I am going to go with Maran, even though that is a pretty light brown egg to be played by a Maran.

    Not Langshan, they're very upright built and leggy, with heavily feathered legs.

    Not sure she's pure Marans, either, but she could be a mix.

    I'd say poorer quality Marans, because her egg is very light.
