Is this a barred Plymouth Rock?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Im just curious. I really doesnt make a difference to me.
I got her about 3 months ago. She was molting, and i was told she is between 2-3 yrs. (It seems like her comb has grown, since ive had her?) Her comb and feet have more color than when i got her. She has started laying well! Her eggs are medium brown...
My concerns with her being a BR are:
1) i wasnt told her breed
2) she seems a bit "mottled"
3) are her legs whiter than "standard"


Thanks in advance!

Thats a pretty girl! I have a Barred Plymouth Rock Hen and my neighbor has a Dominique They love to play  confuse the hell out of the owner sometimes haha! You can tell the difference because a barred rock is bigger and much fluffier

Phoenix bantam Roosterm, 2 white cubalaya/Phoenix hens, 2 brown leghorn hens, a chocolate jersey giant, blue splash shamo pullet, a blue pumpkin shamo cockerel, bantam hen mix, Muscovy ducks, blue splash french maran hen, blue barred maran hen, black austrolorp hen

The main difference between barred rocks and dominiques is the comb. The Dominique has a rose comb, and a barred rock has a straight comb.

 

Yours looks like a hatchery stock barred rock hen

Currently have:

LF:,buff laced brahma , gold laced brahma , light brahma,, ,bearded white polish, leghorn

Bantam: WC polish, silver polish, bearded white polish, partridge silkies, red pyle phoenix, red/buff cochin, brown red modern game, splash and white silkies

In the bator:  Some of everything

hatchery stock
means not always true to breed "standards"?

Thanks

Hatchery quality Barred Rock. So a Barred Rock not bred to its true breed standard, a "generic" version. :)

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
