    looks like a pullet [​IMG]

    barred pullets are darker than the cockerels (more black than white) and often have dark on the front of their legs like yours does [​IMG]

    Quote:I said barred, as in the color.

    What I said about darker coloring and grey legs is fairly true in Barred Rocks, Dominiques, and Cuckoo Marans - I have all three.

    Thanks, I have a barred rock and a silver cuckoo maran. they all look pretty similar. The only difference between the rock and dominique is the comb. The cuckoo maran seems to have more muted markings.
