    Oh my goodness, that is one seriously gorgeous Cuckoo Maran! At what age did the comb become so big? Mine's was really small even after 20 wks plus

    My guess is Barred Cochin cockerel or a Marans x Rock. Reason: yellow legs, feathered shanks, straight comb.
    Not a Marans, or at least not a pure bred, since they should have white/pink legs. Not a barred Rock since they shouldn't have feathered shanks.

    ETA: ugh, single comb.

    Roster for sure looks like cross but he is a nice looking chick
     
  7. Barred Cochin chick. I'm gonna say cockeral, but depending on the age could easily be a hen. Cochins have big combs, for some reason. Lol.

    Hello, there! I'm not sure what breed mix that is, but I'd say he was a cockerel - and he's very sweet-looking.

    Hi guys, thx so much. Just my thinking, my pekin bantam rooster is the father to this sweety..... darn it!! :) I saw the yellow legs, looked to my bantam rooster with a suspicious eye ;) He/She is 4 weeks here, I also think it is a roo, the comb is pretty big and "he" is very dominant! LOL
