Well I'm guessing that would be a French Copper Maran rather than a Cuckoo Maran which are definetly grey.

On the omlet website they have this description;

"The majority of the Marans we see today in the UK are cuckoo coloured, ranging from a very dark grey colour down to silver"

They have French Wheaten marans on that website as well as an cuckoo maran. I have to say I've never seen a cuckoo maran looke that black and white and that photo looks more like a barred Plymouth Rock to me.

Grey maran here

you know I think the lacing on that cuckoo maran looks more like a wyandotte. My marans are much splodgier

Hi, don't know how old this thread is as I've just joined, but I can confirm that the Maran in question is a copper blue. They come in lots of different colours - french cuckoo (gray and white stripes), copper black (black with a copper colour round the neck), copper blue (same as copper black, but the black is replaced by a bluey grey colour), french wheaton (a lovely creamy brown colour). Hope this helps clear up this question for all of you chickeny people out there
