    I got this roo as a chick from the feed store. I had thought he was a barred rock and now I'm not so sure. He's the darker one in the middle. He's looking so much darker than my other barred rock roo and he's got brown around his neck and sides. Any ideas what he might be?

    The cuckoo maran chicks I looked up had yellow on their bellies. He didn't. He does have a single comb. Not sure if marans do?

    He's a BR if he has a single comb. Pretty boy!
