    Ok, I have 3 that are barred rock styled.
    I am sure one is a male, the other two are pullets, but all their makings are different.
    I ordered 2 Cuckoo Marans, so they have to be in this bunch.
    I am leaning more to the roo & the irregular barred pullet as the Marans?? Or am I way off?? lol


    one female has very regular barring
    at 5 weeks

    the other pullet has soft, irregular barring,

    same chick

    and the roo?, pretty sure it is a roo, is almost rumpless?
    very regular barring, and creamy white legs
    at 3 weeks

    and at 8 weeks, this pic doesn't show his lack of a rump,
    but even without his rump, he is the largest in my flock.

    I'd say that the ones with the more blurry or "soft" barring are the Marans. At least, that's the way mine are.

    Nice birds! [​IMG]
