    I bought this guy with some Golden Cuckoo Marans pullets, he is supposed to be one but as you can see, he has yellow legs! Anybody know what he may be? [​IMG]

    Well, when I first got mine they had yellow legs (I think, long time ago) but now, since they've started laying, their legs have gone pinkish-white.
    Do you know how old it is?

    He's almost 6 weeks old, and the pullets already have the pinkish white legs

    Sounds like you've got a cockerel then. Are you able to keep a rooster?

    Marans have white skin and should not have yellow legs. I am guessing that that is a Black Sex Liink Cockerel or a mix.

    He was supposed to be a GCM, but just wanted to know if I was right in assuming that he was something else entirely..... because my pullets all have the white/pinkish legs even though I know not all 5 of them are GCM.
