    I too ordered the "rare marans" chicks from mypetchicken.com. I ordered 6 sexed pullets.
    They're 1.5weeks now

    Far right- this is the one really in question.
    Clues: 1) all black no white on body or wings 2) olive colored feathered legs

    Second from left- I have two like these black and white with white tipped wings and light colored feathered legs

    Next two are of the same chick: dark olive/gray legs feathered and patterned wings with red over eyes

    It's a Blue Copper Marans chick. It'll be a very pretty bird!

    Thank you for your feedback! I thought it wasn't right for a BCM.
    Pretty, yes, not really nice thus far though, it's the only one that repeatedly pecks at me!
