    Plymouth rock or simply rock is the name of the breed. Barred is the name of the color.

    II had whites, Columbians blue sex-linked ones and black sex-linked ones. All plymouth rocks. They are resistant to diseases. They thrive in harsh conditions and in low-density feed.

    After asking I came across this on BYC https://www.backyardchickens.com/reviews/ It has them listed as two different breeds? My chickens look exactly like yours and I bought them as Barred Rocks. What color eggs do yours lay? Mine range from a creamy tan to medium brown and I would not say they are large eggs at least not yet..they've only been laying for about six weeks and they've gradually gotten bigger. For me my bantam eggs were perfect sizeI miss them.

    The bared variety lays speckled and darker eggs than the other varieties. Ony my whites were the heritage from a breeder and were fitting to standards. My other varieties were layer strains of dominant CZ.

    They are beautiful hens, especially when their combs turn that shiny rose red...we have a chicken strutting around in the worlds most coveted color combination-only the Creator! I'm intrigued by the silver penciled.
