My Marans rooster has been staying at some people in the area , they really wanted chicks BUT , he fathered blue / smokey chicks ????? the mother is a light sussex I didn't get pics from their chicks but my marans rooster is bought as a '' BLACK copper marans '' not blue !! I will have to do my best to get him on picture but that will be when he comes 2 sleep , in waiting of that I have to admit his feathers look darkblue but isn't that how a black one looks like ? it is just a shine on the black , found a pic online a spittin image from him but that was placed with '' BLUE copper marans rooster " ???? any input plse !!
