    I ordered two Juvenal (24 week old), Cuckoo Marans. One is obviously a CM, and lays nice chocolate eggs. This one, though she is a lovely hen, lays an average brown egg, and her barring is very distinct. Am I correct to assume she is a Barred Rock? Very nice hen. Consistent layer, and sweet natured.
