    Hi everyone,
    I have a Marans rooster that was hatched out of a batch of cuckoo marans eggs. He doesn't look like any of my other cuckoo roos. I was wondering what kind of marans he is or is he just an off color type Marans. I am pretty new to the breed and would appreciate someone who knows more about them to give me a suggestion to why he is colored this way. Thanks/ Steelshot

    the top one is a golden cuckoo and the white one is called a splash cuckoo. Evidently someone has more then one kind of cuckoo together
