    She looks purebred to me. Nice bird! Those white wingtips will most likely disappear as she gets older.

    I never knew they looked so much like Black Star hens. [​IMG]

    It will outgrow the white. It looks pure, but isn't a true French Marans because it is clean legged and not feather legged. That is according to standard anyway. I have both clean and feather legged and love them all! [​IMG]

    I can actually tell the difference more quickly now that I have owned my own BCMs for a while. They do look really similar when just glancing at them.
