    Yup, dark fuzz and black leg fronts. Unless she's fools you, which sometimes happens.

    thank you. Anyone else have any ideas? I am concerned it might be a roo because the white spot on the head is a little splotchy. Otherwise, the feathers are darker the my other BR chicks and the black splash on the legs is more then the others also
    ETA these are breeder stock not hatchery if that makes a difference I am not sure [​IMG]

    No definitely a girl. Way too dark in color and not enough white in the feathers! I found this out with my barred rocks. I got three straight run and ended up with three girls.
    And if it helps I got mine from tsc and I chose the ones with a lot of white on them (not knowing I could end up with boys) I was lucky I didn't!
