    check out feathersite for pics...a good marans should lay nice dark brown eggs and have white legs. some types should also have feathered shanks such as the fbcm and the cuckoo(if im not mistaken).

    what are you looking for, info or pics?

    Wow did not know there was such a site to help ID my chicks.

    From the pics it now looks like my 3 - 6 week chicks are pullets. Still thinking I have one cockerel since it has feet feathers and might be the one that started to crow! I don't think the feet feathers matter at all, but I threw it in for good measure.

    black copper marans should have feathered shanks on both genders, so do the cuckoo marans but it is common to get clean legged birds. if you have pics we could tell you for sure.
