We have five Golden Cuckoo Marans that are just over a year old. We really enjoy the breed, and plan on breeding them, and slowly transitioning our flock to pure Marans in a few years. We can't really tell all of the hens apart at the moment, but I will provide a few pictures if anyone wants to give us a 'general rating' on the hens. Getting second opinions on the rooster is what we majorly want. His legs ARE feathered, but the actual feather parts of been rubbed/pecked off, but close up you can see the shafts all there. He also had a bad bout of frostbite this winter, so the prongs on his comb are kind of all gone. The next few are pictures that were taken last fall and summer, when he was about 6 months old. This was when he had the little bump on his toe, and a scratch that was inflicted from something.
