    I can't figure out who this is. She's all grey with some brown in her neck. Single comb. Feather legs. She's 14 weeks [​IMG]

    I'd guess its a blue copper Marans. And I'm thinking its a cockerel going by the comb and wattles and all the copper coloring already.

    Yup, Blue Copper Marans.

    I'm tossed up on gender. Comb and legs scream cockerel, but feathering and color suggests pullet. Do you have any other photos?

    She lets us pick her up and cuddle her all day long!
    My kid is gonna be so sad when I tell him.
    All my chickens are cockerels! This was the last kne I thought would be.
    Thanks for all the help. I'm going to go cry now.
