I see a perfectly normal hatchery quality male Cuckoo Marans
I do see that the barring is actually slightly less of a mess than it was when he was a tiny chickster. I think you can safely say he's a hatchery Cuckoo Marans cockerel, as Pele said.
Some updated pictures.
Very "incriminating" photos.
The comb and wattles look a bit MORE pink in the photos than in real life.
Still considered a Cuckoo Maran Cockerel?
S/he is now about 4-5 weeks old...
The sweetest chicken (but does scream when picked up).
i still belive its a cuckoo maran cockrel
I have 3 hatchery cuckoo marans, 9 weeks old pullets. None of them have feathered legs.
French Marans do have minor leg feathering, though. The Marans come with and without, though most hatchery stock I've seen does not have it. Still, unless he's just a mixed breed, he'd almost have to be a Marans (or the worst barred Cochin I've ever seen.)
Do Barred Rock roos combs grow in pink, or start to turn pink later on? I have a 4week old "pullet" who I'm now wondering If she's a he. Her comb is just starting to turn pinkish. I am completely new to chickens keeping. Any thoughts?
