    I bought a few day old Blue Copper Marans from a local breeder. This one specific pullet is very different than the others. What is she? A splash Blue Copper? Birchen? She has beautiful, full leg feathering. Is she even a Marans?

    I think that she's a Marans. I've just looked up various color varieties, and I think that she could be a Blue Birchen Marans.

    Well, that's cool, but should she be in my Blue Copper pen?

    Hmmmm she looks nothing like my Blue copper even her shape and face look nothing like any of my Marans. Im not sure if she is or not she is very light more like a lavender. Do you have more pics of her?
