I have about 8 Black Copper Marans Roos. They were supposed to have feathered shanks. The Roos with the best coloring do not have feathered shanks even though they came from a breeder who said that hers were feathered. It seems that the APA standard (in the future) will require feathered shanks. (Am I correct?) So that leaves me to wonder, do I cull them and work with the others (way too much copper) or do I go ahead and breed the Roos with no feathered shanks and see how the chicks come out? Another puzzle is that one of the Roos is definetely a Cuckoo pattern but has copper hackles. How did that happen?
