    You'll need to elaborate. By speckledy do you mean spangled (white w/black dots) splash (white with grey and black feathers) silver laced (each feather is white with black lacing) barred (each feather is striped) - Or something else?

    Is the Cuckoo Marans what you're asking of to make or to use as a parent?

    Most UK sites say it is a Rhode Island Red/ Cuckoo Marans hybrid.

    Well then in that case, all you need is a Cuckoo Marans hen and a red colored rooster. Could be a red Sussex, a Rhode Island Red, whatever.
