Because of space and safety issues, while I was brooding four Guinea Fowl keets; a friends of mine purchased from my farm store (I am the "Chicken Lady" at our store), some barred rock pullets, I also had Cuckoo Maran pullets which I badly wanted, but I was brooding guinea fowl keets at the time. So, she took her barred rocks as well as my cuckoo morans and brooded them together until I could take my chicks. I'm now ready for them but we are not 100% sure which are her barred rocks and which are my cuckoos. At nearly four weeks of age they look nearly identical, how do you tell the two apart??

Look at the bottom of their feet. Yellow is Plymouth Rock. White/pink is Marans.

Plymouth Rocks have yellow skin and legs. Marans White.
