ok this is gonna take a while. 3 "marans" were given to me but im not sure if they are marans because 1 lays a number 2 egg and one lays a white egg. the roo isnt as dark as a marans would be and the brown egg hen has yellow feet i heard marans weren't supposed to have that. we incubated 4 babies from them and the babies all have yellow feet and 1 egg came from the same guy that gave me these birds we are talking about the egg was atleast a 7 from his birds he owns.but the baby that came from the dark egg looked the same but now has little red lines going across his back and across his wings he has black feet so is he still a marans because of the the lacing? 1 of the hens the man gave me has red feathers going down her neck she kinda looks like a mostly black sex link. they all of them look like a rir aussie cross i just looked it up. can any of you help?
