I'm going to make this short and to the point. I bought some FBCM hatching eggs for a good amount of money and was given a bonus egg a blue Marans. Only three hatched and they all have severe leakage problems. They were sold as FBCM. So my question is this leakage problem common? If so I don't think I will EVER try to get Marans again. These chickens are going to go to a home for free to someone who is not going to use them in a breeding program (hopefully my Aunt). I'm a little upset because the cock has white feathers on his shanks, wings, and tail feathers(BC). The BC pullet has the same issue only very sparse feathering on her shanks, the Blue has brown feathers on her shanks and white wing, shank, and tail feathers. If this isn't common I'm wondering what the odds are that all of my chicks have these horrible issues. Can this be a problem for other people that have bought the eggs before me. This persons chickens are beautiful and this person is so kind and caring. I really like this person I will not drop names I will only post pictures and hope that some FBCM owners and breeders enlighten me. I would love to breed Marans to improve the breed but you have to start some where and this is not how I want to start. Thanks for the input, if there is any!

The cock also has a lot of copper coloring on the breast. Thanks for looking! Hope someone could ease my pain .
