    I had received an order of assorted feather legs from Ideal, and there are 2 I'm struggling with as far as the breed. Please help me figure out what they are! [​IMG]

    She has feathered legs, but is feathering out more black with white specks. I'm wondering if she's a feather legged cuckoo maran?

    She has 5 toes like a faverolle, but at 2 1/2 weeks is way tinier than her "siblings". She's also a slightly darker than my other faverolles.

    Thanks for looking at my girls!!

    They live in a brooder full time right now. I only took them out momentarilty to snap close ups. If I hadn't there'd be 21 of their closest freinds hanging out there, and then where would we be? You'd have no clue which chicks I was talking about!! [​IMG]
