    This one came from a Black Copper Marans but isn't black and white like all the pictures I have been looking at on the web. Will it loose the copper fuzz? Is it a different colored Marans?

    The hen we had purchased as a Black Copper Marans (she looks just like one) and she had been with a Black Copper Marans rooster. We collected her egg the day after getting her; however, for that day she was in with our Birchen Marans. I guess I figured that the Black Copper was the daddy as that egg was probably forming when we brought her home.

    Yes I would be very interested to know where you got the chick as well. It looks like a Blue Copper Marans chick, which is not a very common sight in the US.

    Edit: D'oh, posted right when the description was posted.

    She looks kinda brownish, I bet the chick will look similar when it is older.
