How do you tell the difference between the two???
Marans have white legs, barred rocks have yellow.
Yellow legs - barred rock
white legs - marans
Also the patterning of the barring is different, but that's harder to explain.
Quote:Yep, the pattern on barring in barred rocks is more crisp and clear than the barring in Cuckoo Marans, it is becuase Barred Rocks are a slow feathering breed and the CMs are rapid feathering and the barring kinda gets blurred and messy looking and that is when it is called Cuckoo and instead of Barred, but they are both the same gene.
