    I would say they are barred, but the roo looks mixed. Maybe someone was going for a crele? That's what the roo looks like, though there aren't any crele cochins, recognized anyway, to my knowledge.

    he's missing a bit of colour on the wings to be a proper crele, nice colour but I don't think it's showable.
