    I know it is extremely early but the little comb and white coloring got me wondering. I bought it as a sexed pullet--does have the black on the front of the legs. What do you think?

    If you ask me it's too early to tell, though the comb does seem rather pronounced for a two-day old. However I don't think it's a barred rock- looks more like a black australorp chick- there's too much white on it. Barred rocks are black with just a white spot on the head, and australorp babies look like tiny penguins. Could it be a mix?

    Need a better head shot to give our best opinion. I have 2 BR's and one did have a lot of white on the chest and their combs came in before any other, but both are pullets. Can you take a few pics of the head and legs for us?
