    Pictures 1 and 3 do look like French Black Copper Marans (I am seeing feathered feet, correct?) The last pics I'm not sure - do they have copper in them, too?. They should have the copper coloring, not the white flecks you are talking about in picture #4. Don't know about the others.

    Hope someone tells you what that first one is. I have one just like it. It has black legs, lays brown eggs. No feathers on the feet though, big girl too.

    #1, the black hen in #5, #6 are French Black Copper Marans. #4 with the silver instead of copper color would make her a Silver birchen and likly marans but the English style(since she doesn't have featherd legs). And #3 I would guess is a poor quality Black Copper Marans since you have the other 4 Marans. If you want some good feed back on those marans, post some pictures on the Marans thread in the Breeds section... WE LOVE pictures there [​IMG]

    #1 looks like one of my Black Sex Link girls. they are a cross bread and the black to red ratio can be dif. for all of them and the leggs can be black or not. if they were crossed again it could have given a bit more change.
    good luck![​IMG]
