Is this a maran?
Is it a Mrs or Mr Smoky?
Approximately 17 weeks old
I see it now. Sorry, it wouldn't come up at first. The chicken looks like a rooster for sure. Not sure on breed. Someone who knows about Marans will chime in soon.
It looks like a Marans and yes it is a Roo. marans have white legs and barred Rocks yellow. It could be some other sort of Barred breed I guess.
Looks like a male Cuckoo Marans to me.
MR. Smoky, the Cuckoo Maran looking cockerel! Lol.
ETS: Could we perhaps get an up-close on the hackles and saddle feathers. That tail of "his" makes me wonder, and maybe a picture of him not excited? My Cuckoo Cockerel looks a bit different than Smoky here.
I am going out on a limb on the gender and say hen, reason being is that I see no hackle and/or saddle feathers, and I have barred rock hens at 20wks that have wattles and combs twice that big, so I say hen as far as breed I am certain she is not a barred rock, but not real sure what she is.
