    Looks more like a Cuckoo Marans with that dark leg color at the age, and based by the comb, I'm leaning toward cockerel

    These are day old chicks

    due to a lack of defined barring on the bird, I'd say cuckoo marans

    [​IMG]Well a cuckoo has white or pink feet and a Barred Rock has yellowish to orange feet color..looks just like my cuckoo maran ..and thus bird looks darker than Barred Rock..cuckoos get blacker looking than Barred rocks..if she keeps getting blacker with just speckss of white instead of Barred than its a cuckoo..pretty sure that looks like a cuckoo maran tho..the closer one is Barred Rock and one across that's darker is cuckoo
