    I bought a French Black Copper Maran. However I see no copper on her. She has the feathered feet and lays dark eggs. Are there French Black Copper Marans that are just black?

    Welcome to BYC!!!!!

    Yes, it is very common for some Black Copper females to not show any copper in the hackles. It is something quite a few breeders are working on. They are still Black Coppers and should give you lovely eggs.
