    Picking up 2 marans tomorrow...what should I look for. Still new at this. One of them will be from 2 month olds (black copper) the other will be one of her 3 week old (Blue) How do I pick the best pullets? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:Check leg color Should be black with pink feet on bottom
    Feathered legged all the way down to outside toe non on any other toes
    look for copper showing on hackle feathers

    hard to say other then those at that age some more experienced people may give some more ideas. but they change allot on feathering and body type until they are 5-6 months so not sure what else to really look for besides maybe combs or off set tail feathers.

    Hopw that helps
