I agree one is Sumatra, number 2... could it be a Dorking??? Maybe 3 too???? Did they have Dorkings where you got them? I know they are considered rare....

From Feathersite.....





Allthough... number 3 had black legs... I dunno


or maybe silver laced and partridge rocks???

#1 looks like a Blue Sumatra...

Lemme do some looking around for the other two! lol!

I doubt they're Dorkings because of the shank coloring. Dorkings have pale/pearl legs while your birds have blue/ black leg coloring.

I'm thinking #3 is a Copper Maran.

Still looking up #2.

OK...finally came up with what I think it is. Birchen Maran is my guess.

Here is a site to help out:

I'm not that familiar with Marans but I believe the UK stock is more apt to having feathering on their legs while the US stock is supposed to have featherless legs.

Dorkings have white legs and 5 toes, so they do not appear to be dorkings.

Are #2 and #3 purebred?

If so... #2 looks like an Iowa Blue rooster or possibly a birchen Marans and #3 is colored almost like a black copper Marans, but do not know what the leg color is for any of those, just going by coloring alone.

Wow thanks for giving the prize to a non-Okie....


Only difference I see between your Copper Maran and the one in the photo is that yours has black coloring in it's legs whereas that one has white/pearl legs.

HOWEVER. Marans legs can vary according to Feathersite's photos.
