    We bought 11 supposed Black Cooper Maran chics in Feb, some turned out to look like they should. There are 3-4 that look different and we wonder what they are, they came from Black Copper Maran eggs (bev davis I beleive) and they do have the slightly feathered feet like some describe

    Marans should have pink legs, all of you birds have slate legs. If they had pink legs, I would say they are Birchin and Black Copper Marans. But because of the slate legs, I would say they are mixes.

    Thanks, you need to do better research, copper marans and other marans all have white to slate color legs, not pink, nor does it say pink anywhere on line that you can find
