Well Cuckoo Marans have a pattern similar to a Dominique rather than a Barred Plymouth Rock. Cuckoo Marans have white beaks, white legs, and French lines have feathered legs. Barred Plymouth Rocks have yellow beaks and yellow legs with a dark wash over.

"Cuckoo" is more of a "V" stripes ... "Barred" is more straight across stripes ...

Barred rocks have lower tail set, plus clean (no feathers) yellow legs and yellow skin, and lay light brown eggs
