    Okay I will have to say that I have never seen a blue Birchen Maran before, so I am not sure if this is one or not. I do find it quite pretty though, and just had to bring it home. I got what was claimed to be a hen and a rooster, and I noticed they have fuzzy feet like a silkie. oh and I grabbed a mixed breed that was a cutie as well.. Let me share some pictures..

    Yep, those are Marans and indeed Black Copper, the Blue Birchen, hard to say, it could be a solid blue too, you'd have to wait. [​IMG] The Black Copper "boy" may be a girl though.

    True French Marans are supposed to have feathered legs like you see. [​IMG]

    Quote:That is great news!! I wouldn't complain if the boy was really a girl either.

    Can you feather sex these like sex links?

    Also yes I felt silly , when I first brought them home and mixed them in with my australop chicks I couldn't tell the difference until I saw the fuzzy feet. They all have fuzzys... I think it's neat [​IMG]
