    Would someone tell me the differences in appearances between the Cuckoo Maran and the Barred Rock?

    I know I have one or the other but trying to make sure which one.


    This is the chicken in question. His feet are pink.

    My barred rocks have yellow legs with some dark shadowing on the front.

    Thank you so much. He has pink legs. So it looks like I got myself a cuckoo maran.
    Now I hope I have a girlfriend for him. Going to search feathersite for pics of pullets to see if they match any of my other chickens.
