I'd say barred rock chicks,but I'm so brand new...I just read and research and read some more. I'm sooo addicted after my first and only so far hatch from incubator...my family think I'm crazy smile.png I just love chickens now!!! A newfound love I didn't know was there until I saw their lil beaks pippin thru the shells smile.png

I've been reading as much as I can as well I can't wait till they are a little bigger and hopefully try and identify what they are crossed with. I hope they look more barred rock !

This rooster does not look like a pure barred Rock, he looks like a mix. The rules of sexing barred birds (darker legs are pullets, smaller, tighter headspots are pullets) only apply to pure barred birds. So, all bets are off here, even if he were pure mixing him with non-barred hens would throw those rules out the window.
