    IMG_0425.JPG IMG_0426.JPG IMG_0427.jpg So I purchased some chicks from TSC last season. Both are laying at the moment, however they appear to be different breeds. They were sold as "cuckoo Marans". Any thoughts on what they actually are? I was under the impression Maran's had dark wash on a pink or white foot rather then the yellow foot as seen in Chicken 1.

    with those yellow legs, the first looks like a hatchery BR. if the second has white legs she might be a hatchery marans.

    First hen is definitely barred rock with her single comb and pale legs. #2 I'm not so sure about with her dark legs.
