    the guy i bought this little guy from said he was a blue copper marans but now that he is pretty much full grown and i see his colors i call bullcrap, he might have some marans in him but i think he is a mutt or a disgrace to the name blue copper also if it helps he has like one or two very small feathers on the insides of his legs but they are so small they don't show in the pictures what do you think of him

    well i looked at the guys stock and he had all sorts of colors of marans he had cuckoo, black copper, wheaten, white, blue, birchen, black, splash, and blacktailed buff so maybe they just got mixed i know the black coppers and blacks i got from him are marans because of eggs and plus the rooster i got from him looks just like his dad that the owner had onsight that he had imported here from europe also if you could help he told me that if i crossed the blue copper with the black i would get blue marans is this true
