    Is that red paint on their heads or nartural?

    What breed are the black ones with the lighter colored patches on the back of their heads? I got some exactly like that as extras (probably roos) in an Ideal order that came this morning. Also, why do some of them have red coloring on their heads; did you have them marked so you could tell which were the males?

    The ones with the white and yellow dots are the Barred Rocks---the pink or red spoltches of feathers are the marking dots from the hatchery--so they can kep track of the chicks when they are counting and separating the order for shipping--it eventually wears off.[​IMG]

    Too cute! The chicks with the pink color mark on their heads are usually the packing peanut extras.

    Quote:Those are Barred Rocks. They were combined with another big order at the feed store that had another breed that was mainly black. So they marked my 3 with red as barred rock pullets.
