    I am new to Cuckoo Marans and would like to see others pictures of Cuckoo Marans specifically...and any info about the breed if possible. I know that some have feathers on their feet and some don't, mine don't. Mine are 12 weeks old. When do they usually begin laying??? My other chickens began at around 20 weeks.

    without feathers English Cuckoos or Black Cuckoos..with feathers Silver Cuckoos I don't see many Golden Cuckoos with feathered shanks I have a few will be breeding mine to the proposed SOP so that means feathered shanks. There are some really nice English Cuckoos that lay 7+ eggs most though that people have are the hatchery ones who if you are lucky lay a 4 egg. Try the Marans thread we've been busy posting pictures on there.
    Here is a picture of some hatchery ones
