Not sure if this is a Plymoth Rock or a Holland and if it is a PR is it male or female?

    It has rounded feathers and pointed feathers small stub spurs and also crows. But I have been told that females can crow sometime also. Please help!

    ROOSTER! Big wattles, hackle and saddle feathers, spurs coming in (though hens can get them too).
    Where did you get him? Hatchery, breeder, craigslist? Rocks have yellow legs, but it could just be a hatchery quality PR and have the white legs.
    Hope this helps!

    If you look up PR's the females get big waddles and combs also the male gets enlongated waddles though that is why i am not sure if it is a PR and if it is going to be male or female we got them on the 15th of october from a feed and farm store they said they were about 3 weeks old so it is about 4 and 1/2 months old now.

    its leg color and barring is a dead give away that its not a br (no not trying to sound mean). he has white legs, the barring is a cockoo patteren, and he has the right comb to be a cockoo marans

    ok thanks, I looked up cuckoo marans which are not listed on this web site under breeds or I would have included the breed in my list and see that they do look alike. My family is new to the chicken world. My daugther joined FFA.

    He's probably going to start crowing soon. I hope you can keep him.

    Definitely a cockerel, and I agree with hdowden that he's a HQ Cuckoo Marans.

    hiya! I would guess Marans as well,Cuckoo Barring correct for the Holland, but leg color is wrong.

    Enjoy your roo, he's beautiful!, get him a girlfriend and enjoy some chocolate eggs!
