    You'd know hers-She is a black Copper Maran and she will lay very dark brown eggs:)

    Oooh - excited to see this photo - I have a BCM chick and happy to see she will be so pretty when she grows up.

    Was yours black with kind of a yellow breast when she was a chick?

    She was all black when she was a chick. As her feathers came in, her head gradually turned a reddish-gold color.

    Quote:You sure? The legs look green/ yellow, which Marans are not supposed to have. Also she has lots more copper than any BCMs I've seen. Just wondering....

    I think she's a black sex link.

    x2 Most BCMs have sparse feathering on their legs as well. I'm guessing black sex link.

    Does not look like any of my FBCM. None of them have that lacing in the neck. If it is it looks more like my roos. Actually looks more like my Oliver egger = Easter egger in the front and Marans in the back [​IMG] with out the pea comb.
