    As this young roo is growing hackles, some look barred and I was wonderig if he was a splash cuckoo, or just splash with trashy barring bleeding through. Here he is, just standing, and below is a detail pic of some of his feathers. On his tail, some of the grey areas are not barred, but big, solid markings of gray, which is what confuses me. Thanks again in advance for your opinions everyone.

    I hope he comes from dark egg lines. I bought blind when someone was selling out, couldn't pass up him, or his splash sister it looks like. even if they laid white or cream I would never get rid of them. Supposedly marans.
