    It's probably mixed because of the leg color.

    cuckoo marans have slate legs,
    barred rocks have yellow legs...
    the first to me looked like a pullet the second looked like a roo...
    im just judging by their faces...
    i have a cuckoo marans that looks like the first pic facewise and the second pic colorwise
    but im no expert
    i hope some others answer you questions

    It looks just like my BR pullet. Just a guess though, I'm not an expert.

    Pic 1 looks like a BR. In the second post that 1st one looks like a cuckoo marans.

    I am guess both are pullets.

    A marans cockeral is usually noticably lighter in color.
