    So i picked up 4 maran chicks my other 3 I fully believe are marans. This one I am thinking may be an orphington? Also think she may be a blue splash. 4 weeks old. Also do you think I am correct in her sex supposed to be a pullet. What do you all think?

    Splash Marans maybe? Foot color looks too dark to be Orpington

    I've had some blue coppers that didn't get the feather foot for some reason. Maybe not purebred.

    Did the seller have blue orps too?

    The seller went to get 20 chicks and ended up coming home with 67 most where black and blue maran. He also had these blue splash what I assumed where marans but also a few buff orphingtons thata why I thought orphington as the buffs where also a bit larger.
