    Someone must have really jipped you, because that is certainly not a Marans or even Black Copper. [​IMG]

    It is indeed a roo, though.

    Quote:I hatched this chick my self and it came from Dark chocolate egg. It looks like a mix though of maybe silkie and copper marans.

    Both Silkie and Marans would give it feathered shanks, which it doesn't have. If anything, the Marans parent would be lightly feathered or not feathered, and the second parent would be a non-bearded Polish.

    Would help to know what type of chickens you have. Otherwise everyone will be guessing for a long time.

    I thought it was copper maran because I hatched it myself in my own incubator until Illia said that it is not Maran. The egg was very dark chocolate color and it had specks on it.

    What breeds are your chickens? How many roos/cockerels?


    Or do you have a picture of your flock?
