    :frow:welcome @mommalou71 Can you get a close up picture of the comb? It doesn't look like a barred rock. The tail looks like a rooster

    Looks to me like it could be a Barred Rock pullet because the legs are darker. Males tend to have more yellow in the legs. Males tend to have more white in the barring.

    It does look like a Cuckoo Marans. Cuckoos have white legs and feet and white beaks. They also have uneven barring. At 13 weeks that seems awful red in the face. More pictures would help.

    I could see how you might think cuckoo Maran pullet as well if feet and beaks more white.

    Finally got my girls in their new home... 24'x100' run, with an 8x12 house... maybe an overkill for 7 chickens, but I want them happy :)

    Still looks like Barred Rock Pullet to me. It appears single comb from the side. A Dominique would have rose comb and more prominent chest. The tail feathers to me do not look like a Cuckoo Maran if still wondering. :)
