Yup, my Marans had clean legs. From what I understand of the breed, Marans all originally had feathered legs. The clean-legged variety didn't appear until the breed was brought to England, and breeders there worked on removing the trait. Why they'd want to do that, I don't know UrbanCM, cute baby pictures! That's definitely not a Marans, but it sure looks cute. It does look identical to the Polish in Lisa's (La Casa) profile pic. Lisa, I was getting all excited about maybe being able to take that extra window off your hands......then realized that the coop I have in mind wouldn't be big enough for it. My dad has offered to help me build a coop and run out at his place (did I tell you guys this already?) He asked me to look through some of the coop designs on here and find what I liked, then we would build. He's so funny, I think he's more excited about it than I am. He's already planning on getting electricity out to the coop so that we can have lights in there for warmth during the cold months, and he's got a spot selected in the yard to build. He'd better be careful, or the chicken math monster will get him.
