This lad is a rescue we took in a few weeks ago, folks are telling me he is a Barred Rock Roo.
He has started to put on some weight, he was very thin when we brought him home.

I thought I should come to the experts for the final call before i tell folks he is a barred rock

He is not a BR, nope. He may be a black sex link, which is 1/2 BR or he may be 1/2 Cuckoo Marans since he seems to have more whitish legs than the yellow of a regular black sex link. In any case, definitely can't be pure BR, if at all. He's a mix with at least one barred parent is all I can say.

I didn't think he was purebred! But he is doing a great job looking after the girls.


He doesn't chase the kids OR sneak up and pounce on me when i am gardening like our last roo did just before he caught the bus to camp freezer!


Thanks everyone for your thoughts!

I would post his pic on the marans thread. He looks like a golden cuckoo marans to me but I am no where close to being an expert. Very nice looking boy!
