    She has feathery feet too. I 'think' shes a blue/grey/silver whatever you call it cochin bantam? she is nearly the same size as my EE's, but LF cochins are gigantic, right?

    She's someone's Blue Marans project. Pretty, but pretty off genetically.

    I thot marans were single comb. She looks to have a pea comb...which also leaves out cochin.

    She's a Blue Maran.... I have a Copper Blue Maran hen and they tend to be a little small, but still standard size.

    Yes, she has a pea comb. My friend picked her out at the local feed store, I was with her and grew attached to her as well,. My friend is moving so she gave her to me <3 I think she laid a light brown egg this morning...
