    Thanks in advance. This is the "Meal Maker" that Meyers put into my Buff Orps order just over 3 weeks ago on 2/22/17. What do you think it is? Her 3 day old photo is my avatar, if that helps.

    I think I'm seeing pink/white skin? If so, that could be a cuckoo Marans.

    If yellow skin, a barred Rock.

    x2 Donrae.

    I'm seeing pink/white skin with grey wash and the appearance of cuckooing....I think its a Cuckoo Marans too.

    Stands taller like a Marans as well. (They have a distinct stance as chicks).

    Wow thanks. Her legs are in fact white-ish, with a grayish wash on the fronts. She is not as welcoming of me as the buffs are, but I hope she grows to love me someday. Thanks for the help! I'll keep yall updated monthly until we nail down a "for sure" breed.

    Hello again ladies and gents. I have updated photo is this mystery bird now that she's 8 weeks tomorrow. Her legs look a bit more yellow each week so I had to update to see what yall thought about her breed now.
