    He looks like a Golden Cuckoo Marans, but his legs look yellow and not pink!!

    I'll Look closer at the legs and see what the color really is! The photo wasnt real good so I tried to lighten it and bring out the colors and detail! I had heard Cuckoo Maran but not sure! Not sure of his weight but he stands about 24 inches tall at the head like he is standing here all tall and proud! I put a 14 inch door to my house and he has to duck to ge in it (May have to make a bigger opening He is only about a year and a half old at the most) He is a big boy
