    IMG_1788.JPG IMG_1796.PNG I think I may have just adopted a breeding pair of cuckoo marans. Any ideas or comments about breed standard. I've just seen a lot of darker cuckoo maran hens than this one. And the rooster has some gold tint to his back. Does this make him part golden cuckoo? I just got them today, so I can't tell egg color yet.

    Those look like they could be barred rocks because of the lack of feathers on their feet. Your rooster is really handsome, though :D

    They both look like mixed breeds.
