    Hi! Please help me to identify this beauty. Is she Golden cuckoo maran or she might be Olive egger, or something else? She has feathered feet. Please advise. Thank you

    I agree that she looks like a Marans, but that feather pattern isn't Golden Cuckoo. It's not quite right. It looks like another pattern coming in. Partial lacing or penciling maybe? The pattern is reminiscent of a Partridge pattern when they are juveniles. When she's more mature and has gone through the juvenile molt it should be a bit easier to determine the feather pattern. It's possible that the feathering is resultant from crossing though.
