    My babies are four weeks old now and I'm still trying to figure out which ones are the pure breed Marans.

    Is this a French Black Copper Maran roo?

    Do you have a reason to believe any are not purebred?

    I bought 16 eggs, four of which were pure breed and 12 that were mixed breeds. 13 eggs hatched including three of the pure breeds. They hatched overnight and I have no idea which ones are which.
