    His legs are yellow, which means he isn't a Marans. He looks too dark to be a Barred Rock cockrel either. I'm guessing mixed-breed.

    I'd vote for a mixed roo too.

    Wait just a minute. You got 'him' last Spring? If so, he's coming up on a year and has no spurs. It's therefore not a he, but a she.

    Thats not a Marans or BR for sure. Looks way to dark, and no obvious hackles for a roo. Comb is small for a rooster of those general breeds.

    Feathering is way too tight to be Marans also.

    I see sickle feathers, I say its a rooster, and it appears to be younger than 1 year old..Looks more like a black sex link

    Uh... thats a hen.
    Short wattles, no spurs at 1 year, looks like a hen to me.

    That is def a young cockerel.

    Maybe he is an offspring from that cukoo maran roo a hen hatched out and you didn't know it?

    That is most definitely a roo. He is not a maran though.

    Looks to me like he has BR in him. I wouldn't be surprised if he was a pet quality barred rock.

    Marans have whitish grey legs.
