    I was told this is a cuckoo Maran. But I supposed it could be a barred rock. Anyway. I was looking at her tail and the feathers do not look as defined and rounded as my standard brown or my Easter Egger. We have already discovered a rooster in our small flock. I'd hate to have another. We cannot keep roosters in our town. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Pullet, and I'm leaning toward Rock instead of Marans. Yellow skin = Rock, white/pink = Marans.

    Yay! Yes, her feet are yellow and grey. That's what confused me. I guess I'll know for sure when she starts laying!
