  1. After recently joining this site I have been wrapped around the axle and consumed with thinking about chickens.

    I went to my local live stock auction this evening just to see what was going on and was the 1st time that I had went for almost 25 years.

    At 1st I didn't see much that interested me but right at the last minute I seen a box come in Marked Cuckoo Maran Kelly Cratty line. Wasn't sure about what kelly cratty line is but the Maran on the box sure did because of reading posts here:)

    So here are a couple pics of my new buddy Louie [​IMG] Ya'll take a look and let me know what you think and if actually looks like and is a Maran?

    Hey [email protected]

    Congrats on your first Marans. It is Marans whether it is singular or plural.

    Kelly Cratty is a breeder who developed a nice line of feathered shanked cuckoos. Notice his legs have the feathers? He's a handsome guy that Louie.[​IMG]
