    We hatched a chick under a broody hen and would like to know the breed. The mom is a Cuckoo Maran, the dad is either a Cuckoo Maran or a EE. (The tan hen in the pics is his adopted mother)

    Any help appreciated! [​IMG]

    Update!
    She is a very pretty Cuckoo Maran! She is also Elvis's only child as he died shortly after she hatched.

    hmmmm i agree. I had a chick hatched out that had a cuckoo maran mother and an unknown father that looked like that it just didnt have that color on the legs. Give it a week or two then you can tell if it is an easter egger or a maran mix.
