    Was wondering if someone could post some pictures of thier cuckoos. I have been trying to figure out the difference between a cuckoo marans and a silver cuckoo. I would also like to see some photos of the golden cuckoos as well. Thanks

    This is a young Golden Cuckoo Marans. He looks much nicer now. I will try to get a new picture of him tomorrow.

    Wendy, that first hen is a Barred Rock, according to the legs, as far as I can tell. Looks identical to mine.

    Cuckoo Marans have pinkish white legs, Wendy. BRs have the yellow with blackish.

    If I can get a pick tomorrow of some of my cuckoo babies, I will post them.

    These are Silver Cuckoo Marans I got from Jimmy last winter. I now have about 16 Golden Cuck Marans chicks that I can't wait to grow up!!!

    Here's a good shot of one of my Barred Rocks. You can clearly see the leg color, they're yellow legged with black markings on them. This is at 8 weeks:

    Hooterville, yours look to be Cuckoos, not BRs.
