Hi Everyone, I was sold these birds as chicks from a fellow who kept wheatens...I saw the flock and the eggs and they looked like 'normal' wheaten marans to me. Flash forward 4 months and this is what i have. Mr doesnt look like any marans roo I've ever seen and Mrs is almost a uniform buff (like the typical neck feathers except all over; she appears to lack the lovely pale body feathering that is typical). Yes there is gradiation but shes dark. not to mention the black wing feathers?? So I wonder about her. What have I gotten my hands on here?! Also my coop is painted a bright sunny yellow so the pics aren't taken in totally natural lighting. His neck feathers are a pale beige color. They take on a weird gold cast in the light that doesn't exist.
