    Hi,

    I just purchased these 3 sweeties. I believe the black one is a barred rock (female I hope - has the small spot on head and dark legs) the other two are a mystery. What do you think? They are feathering out fairly quickly. Thanks everyone!

    Barred Rock? Girl?

    Mystery chick 2 - light grey and hard to tell but breast area is light yellow - feathers seem white and maybe slightly grey

    I'm guessing they are all large fowl vs bantam??? Where did you get them? What kind of combs do they have? What color are the legs? I don't see beard/muffs on any of them and I'm guessing no extra toes or feathered legs.

    Yes, all large fowl. I got them at a local Agway. The brown and grey ones seem to have a very slight yellow pea comb (very small comb still). The black one seems to have the beginnings of a single comb. The black one has a dark blackish wash down the legs, the grey has a grey wash and the brown is yellow. No beards, muffs, extra toes or feather legs (which would be awesome) :).
