I just hatched out some FBC marans. I was also hatching out some of my orpington eggs. I have a mixed-up orpingtons. They are black, buff, lavandar. Anyway, I'm looking at one of the peeps I thought was an orpington, and it has feathered feet! Ok, I've never had feathered feet on any of my orpington peeps before. Is it a Maran? It has a black body, brown head, brownish-grey underbelly, & grey legs. The legs are feather just like the maran chicks. Do you think he sent me a mixed egg? He said he only has marans? Do these pop up on occation in Maran lines?
