So this chick was sold as a cuckoo maran. She is now a little over 3 weeks. She doesn't have the white dot of the cuckoos and at 3 weeks there is absolutely no mottling of grey and white. Is she still a Maran or is this a Australorp or something else? What do you all think. Please help, I have to decide if I am going to keep her!

I don't think so - not with those black legs. Also, if she didn't have a black dot on her head, she's probably not going to be cuckoo either (not that she looks like she's feathering out that way).

Here is a picture of my 3 1/2 week old cuckoo maran with a 2 1/2 delaware in front of her. Maybe she is one of the solid colored Marans?

Could she be a really crappy Black Copper with no fuzzy feet? I know some lines don't have fuzzy feet.

I am disappointed!!!

Maybe I should just wait... I am curious how this plays out. But still ...
