    Barred Rocks have yellow black feet. But the roos might be more yellow than black

    BRs have yellow legs with pullets having a black wash of color down the fronts. Cockerels have a tiny amt of shadow down theirs, but not much. If they have pink legs, they are probably Cuckoo Marans.

    See the cockerel in this picture? If he was a pullet the legs would have more black on the fronts, but would still be yellow. He's nine weeks old. And in the second pic, his brother is almost 15 weeks old. You can see how yellow the legs are.
