    I bought some french black copper marans hatching eggs and i got this chick, i was told it could be a wheaten as you can sometimes hatch a wheaten from black copper marans. I have searched on the net and looked at a lot of pictures but it does not seem to have the same feather colouring on the wings as the wheatens, what do you think, any ideas as to what it is?

    Looks like a possible wheatie to me. The darker wing feathers comming in indicate a roo. I noticed the leg feathers, good, and the darker wing tips, good (but probably roo). The head shape is a little different than mine, but I am really no expert.

    Quote:So you do think it could be a wheaten? I thought possibly roo as it's twice the size of its brother/sister.
    Anyone else?

    Yes the wings look the same. I'm sorry, I don't have any pictures of mine when they were that young.
