    Marans are not technically accepted by either the APA or the ABA at this point. I would put them under Continental-French anyway.
    Orpingtons are Continental-English.

    Yep! As long as it basically looks like a chicken, they let you show it in 4-H [​IMG]

    Same for my Spitzhaubens, the 4H would classify them as Continental class. Something different to see! I love looking at rare breeds!

    Marans are not recognized, so they're not in a specific class.
