    I just got these 8 week old pullets from a local farm. I know the one is a Cuckoo Maran but the other was with a flock of Welsummers. She was much darker with a blue tinge and I just fell in love with her. The owner said she may have been a mistake in the egg order and isn't sure. Can anyone confirm that this is a Welsummer or is she another breed? Her tail splits like a turkey. Sooo cute![​IMG]

    It looks a bit like what I get when I cross my black copper rooster and welsummer hen.

    I agree Barnevelder. She'll lay nice dark eggs for you.

    Wow. A Barneveler?? Never even hear of that.
    I looked at pics online but she doesn't have the V lacing[​IMG]

    . Here is another photo I just took. Everyone still thinks she is a Barneveler? She is very sweet and doesn't mind me petting her at all.

    The photos you've seen online are probably breeder stock birds. This bird is hatchery. I have a handful of Barnies and she's definitely one.
