    Hi BYC! I have a couple mystery pullets I'd like to get your folks opinion on! They're roughly 8 weeks old.

    This one I suspect might be a barred rock. Thoughts?

    Now the perched pullet I'm not too sure about. She was sold to us as a speckled sussex but it doesn't look like any of the SS photos I've found online. The chicken from the first picture is standing in the back.

    #1 looks like a Barred Rock
    #2 is either a Barred Rock or a Cuckoo Maran
     
  3. I would say girl 1 is a BR, and girl 2 is probably a Cuckoo Marans judging by the uneven pattern. [​IMG] They're so beautiful!

    Thank you for your input!

    Thanks! Hope you guys are right about #2, Cuckoo Marans would be a nice surprise! :)
