    Your roosters look like hatchery-quality Barred Rocks to me. The reason their legs are so light is because they are hatchery quality. Cuckoo Marans legs would be even whiter.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I keep Barred Rock hens. Those do look like Barred Rock roosters to me as well.

    Enjoy these gorgeous boys and welcome to our flock!
