    This chicken is a bit of a mystery... He's a he I think? We brought home 4 chicks that were a couple weeks old, at the end of May. The other 3 (a Dominique and 2 oiolas) are definitely hens and definitely look like what they're supposed to be. This chicken came from the same breeder who said Marans... Not sure about that now?[​IMG]

    Any ideas?

    It's hard to see but legs have a few feathers.

    Definitely a cockerel. Could be a Black Marans.

    He's got some very light shank feathering. So I'm sure he's likely got some Marans blood in him anyhow.
