    I saw a post on another thread that Marans leg color should be white.
    We got our Marans from Ray Valentine and I noticed that they don't have white legs, they have black or blue legs. Please note that these are Copper Blue and Blue Marans. I was pretty sure that he sold pure-bred Marans. So, is this leg color acceptable?


    Also, for confusion sake, just how do you pronounce "Marans"?
    Is it: muh Ran? or Mairun?

    Which way is it said?

    Thanks! :)

    Cuckoos have white legs. My blues have white legs, my BC has a dark "wash' look to his legs, and the wheatens have white.

    muh - ranz is how I've been told to say it.

    Thanks!
