This boy was a happy surprise! We purchased Black Copper Maran eggs. All the rest were the expected colour. We contaced the breeder and found out that his BCMs do, rarely, have a pure white chick. This photo was taken when he was just 4 months old. He is very big now and has lovely conformation. Wish I had a white French Maran pullet to breed him too! Is the white recessive? What if I breed him to a black hatch mate? What about to a blue or splash?
