    Barred Rock Rooster and Leghorn Hen cross

    I wanted to show everyone pictures of my Lemon Swiss who is a cross from a Barred Rock Rooster and a Leghorn hen. she mostly looks like a leghorn but has some black patches. In my research I discovered they call them California whites sometimes.

    Definitely Not Important …

    Just a note. I have a Barred Rock and a Cuckoo Marans in my small flock. Everyone is 11 weeks old. I was calling the Cuckoo “Stumpy” because her tail is very short, always has been. The only differences between the two are the tail feathers and that Stumpy’s pattern has been more muted the...

    Rural King Chicks - What are they?

    So once again I feel like I have been duped by the hatchery that Rural King uses! These are my "teenagers" that are about 3 months old (born in April) I picked out and bought 4 Cuckoo Marans, 2 Sapphire Gems and 2 Easter Eggers. One of the EE died after a week so that is why I only have 1 now...

    Hello. First I’d like to say thanks to this forum for existing. 😄 Every time I Google a question this forum seems to have the best answer.

    Good morning! I am a chicken newbie of one month. My mother raised ducks but I never liked them because they were mean to me as a toddler. We have three single-comb, brown leg, three Columbian Wyandotte, and two Barred Rock. The Wyandottes are the calmest. The three brown leg remind me of the...

    Barred rock buff rock cross

    So I’ve seen a lot of barred rock and buff Orpington crosses but I’m curious about a barred rock and buff Plymouth Rock cross. I’m sure someone has done it. Are the results about the same as the Orpington cross or are they slightly different. Just trying to satisfy my curiosity.

    Hello everyone! I am a first time chicken owner and recently picked up my first 3 about a week ago. I got a Speckled Sussex, Barred Rock, and Red-laced wyandotte (however i've only seen it written Blue-laced, so i'm wondering if that was some sort of typo?) Anyways. They were estimated to be...

    Barred Rock pullet or cockerel?

    Hi everyone, New to backyard chickens and I need your help identifying the gender. Some feathers are getting thinner/longer, especially around the neck and tail. Its about 13-14 weeks old. It's also growing a few green/copper feathers. No crowing yet. Could this be a rooster? Thank you.
