    Cuckoo marans are single combed - his is not.

    Pardon, it might be the small phone screen I'm on, but it looks like a straight comb to me.

    Pea comb, yellow legs, and feathered legs points to Barred Rock/Brahma mix.

    Thanks, all. He has a single comb, it seems like. If this is Cuckoo Marans, is it the French or English? I got it from a local grain supply store.

    That's not a single comb, it's a taller than average pea comb, probably due to the Barred Rock influence.
    Not a Cuckoo Marans. They have white legs.
