    I don't have great pics, but I was told these was French Black Copper Marans, I bought them for $35. I am trying to sell them now, 1 rooster and 2 hens. Very pretty. Very big. Not even a year old [​IMG]

    They don;t look marans. First impression was hatchery cochins or cochin crosses.. does that rooster have a rose comb?

    to be marans they should be laying pretty dark eggs too,

    It would be better if the wire was not in the way.

    They definitely are not marans of any type. They look strongly like brahmas, although in an uncommon color(blue birchen), could be someone's project or brahmas cross/mixes.
