Was told this is a cuckoo marans rooster ... or barred rock?

    Charlie is large, really large ... towering over my other chickens (all are full size, no banty). Really nice bird and very upright in build. He's about 2 yrs old now. Granted I'm a little color blind, but I don't think he has yellow legs, I think they are whiteish. How can I really know?

    His legs don't look yellow to me. My BRs have yellow legs and my marans have pinkish white legs but they are pullets. anyone? Who has a maran rooster and a BR rooster we can compare this guy to?
    He's handsome, whatever he is.

    Thanks ... sounds like there is a very discrete "I told you so" that I get to communicate. Is there a standard yet for these guys? Is his build on par?
