    I have an 8 wk old (I think pullet) that came from a batch of what was supposed to be Cuckoo Marans. The breeder had Black Australorp babies in with the Cuckoos and I ended up with 3 BA's and the rest look like normal Cuckoo's except for this one. She has a couple small splashes of brown as shown in one of the photos. Any idea's?

    looks like Blue Andlusian, pretty one at that.

    She's definitely blue, but no white earlobes, and I don't think the breeder had an Andalusian on her place. I wondered about Blue Australorp (although I think she only has Black's so not sure that would be possible) or a Cuckoo/Aussie cross (which may account for the brown spots in the wings??)

    Any insight to gender? More comb than I would think a hen to have, but not pink like some of the others.
