    Hi!!

    A nice man gave me three roosters like these.
    Two have single combs and gold barred feathers on their necks mixed in with the black and white barred feathers.
    One has puffy cheeks and a rose comb he looks more blue than he does barred, I'm certain he must be a mix.
    The other two I am curious about because I have no expierence with Marans so I am hoping you nice folks can help me out do any of them look like the real thing??
    Either way I think their very pretty and sweet roos, and I wanted them to go into my mix pen cause I didn't have a roo for that pen.
    Thanks in advance!!

    Kinda hard to tell but if so, they look to be Golden Marans.
    You need to make good buddies with that guy!

    Cool,
    This was all he had, he was getting into French Copper Marans.
