I have a 5 month old rooster that I got as a week old chick and raised. When I got him as a chick, I was told that he was a black copper marans. His coloring is coming in nicely, but he is looking pretty silver around the neck. Is he really a birchen marans?
I thought he might be a mix. What's disappointing is that it seems like I can hardly find anyone in my area that is honest about these rarer breeds. At least he's still pretty nice looking. Maybe he'll lead to some nice olive eggers
