Might this be Birichen Marans?

Hi,

I have this cockerel. It's about 16-17 weeks old. Pretty tall, compared to the other cochin cockerels with which it hatched alongside. I was wondering if it might be a Birchen Marans.
I got it from someone who was not knowledgeable, so I have no background whatsoever on its breed, origin, etc.
What do you think? Does it look like some mixed hatchery stock? Or does it look like a purebreed?
Thank you!

Probably just a poorly bred cochin.
I don't think this particular bird has any Cochin blood. From the start it was very different compared to the other Cochins I have. More precocious, tall, scrawny, flighty, alpha personality. At first I thought it was some kind of hybrid between Australorp and some black sex link (like Moravia BSL here in Europe). But now I'm leaning towards some sort of Marans or Marans-based hybrid.
