    Here is sparkles. Dad is Barred Rock and mom is unknown. She was hatched out of a long pink egg. Any ideas?

    Legs are pink. I would have thought cuckoo maran but the egg is the wrong color. This is my suspected cuckoo barred rock mix who I would bet money is a roo. [​IMG]

    What breeds of hens do you have that would lay that color egg? If the sire is a barred Rock, then the mother should be something white skinned and straight combed.

    Orpington or Marans. If it gets gold leakage as it matures, Orpington. If not, Marans.
