    ...barred rocks. I didn't think they were but thought they looked cool so I bought them anyways. When I first looked at them I noticed some tan in their feathers and their legs are kind of pale and there is something different about their overall shape; a little more (streamlined or low profile) than other barred rocks I've seen. I could be crazy, but does anyone think they are something other than a barred rock? We call them Frick and Frack.

    Okay, thanks for the input. So I dug a little bit to find cuckoo marans and the info I found, said they all have orange or red eyes. These have blue/grey eyes. Any thoughts?

    I think they're just young Barred Rocks, they should fill out as they grow. I've seen them with very pale legs before.
