    I'm guessing a cuckoo Marans there! I got 4 last year.
     
  3. it's probably a barred rock

    I might have said barred rock, but noticed the legs aren't yellow.
     
  5. it's a hatchery feed store bird, not a show quality. It may be some kind of mix or something
     
  6. yeah, it could be a cuckoo maran

    Yeah, could be a mix from a hatchery, but you get the general idea. My cuckoo Marans roo has one long white tail feather sticking out. I think its cute. My birds aren't for showing, so I don't care.

    Yeah, they are great! Last summer they would hop up on my lawn chair & sit with me for a spell. Too cute!
