    Hello! I just bought 3 cuckoo Marans chicks at a show. The Marans club had a booth there and I bought 3 of the chicks. We looked them over and it really looks like I have 1 male and 2 females, the one that looks like a male has feathered legs, and the other two don't. I was told that many cuckoo Marans do not have feathered legs, and that if I breed this trio I will get about 50/50. Do you find this true, or did I get ripped off?

    feather legs is pretty easy to breed back in, so I think that you've got a great thing going!
