    We got this roo as a week-old chick from a lady who breeds French Black Copper Marans and has a mixed barnyard flock (including several barred rock). His legs are yellow and feathered all the way down his outside toe. He's 6.5 months old and loves the ladies.[​IMG] A friend suggested he might be a Cuckoo Marans, but the yellow legs are wrong. I'd love to hear what you all think.

    Could easily be the Marans rooster over the Rock hen. One parent was barred, one wasn't. The red leakage may well get larger as he ages.
