    Oh poop, I thought he was a golden cuckoo maran for the longest time, and thought I hit big [​IMG], or atleast half maran. That's the gamble when you bid on birds at auctions. [​IMG]

    Quote:4 toes, his feet are white with some pink. The pic makes him look darker then he looks on his chest/under area, it shows all blackish. It's really black with spots of grayish specks on him. Also the end near his back it appears white cause of crappy camera but it's really a light gold/multi color.

    Most French Marans, Golden Cuckoos especially, aren't something you can find at an auction locally.
