I can get a picture of her foot tomorrow maybe, she’s a bit wild but the 5th toe is small. It could be a spur bud but I have no idea. These pictures have a better view of her feet but still not great
ok, I can see it now, just a spur. She is a barred rock because: single comb, unfeathered legs. The legs are yellow. Did you get her from a hatchery? Barred rocks are common from hatcheries, cuckoo Marans are not.

I see white skin not yellow and her shape is much more Marans than rock in my opinion with that lovely U shaped back. I really like her, especially with those spurs! My BC Maran's hens are quite butch.... they run my cats out of "their" garden and sometimes run up to confront strangers.... not aggressive, but definitely bold. They don't have spurs though.
It looks like your girl has a bit of scaley leg mite that you might want to treat with some Vaseline or coconut oil or Vick's Vapour Rub is my favourite treatment of the moment for it, especially at this time of year when they are prone to respiratory issues as well. Makes the coop smell lovely and opens the airways!

Thank you, I’ll have to try catching her and get some on her, I had no idea! I’m so new to chickens and no one else at the house knows much either haha!

I’m new to chickens too I would have guessed barred rock on the first one but I’m too new to know differences. I see all the back and forth on 1 and 2. Not sure if these pics help for comparison but here are my two barred rocks that came from tractor supply 2.5 years ago.
