Can email attached photo but need someones email address that willing to help me so I can attach photos. Message me please if you can help me. They look like it could go either way.

    Do they have feathered legs? Feathered legs is a good indication of Maran.

    Here are the pictures of the birds in question. OP emailed them to me.

    I am thinking not Marans due to leg feathering being absent. Hope someone else can chime in.
