    Okay so my sister brought this one home as a 3 day old chick and was told it was a blue Australop... I’m going to have to disagree. Now 5-6 weeks old I’m thinking barred rock roo. Thoughts? Thank you 550FED42-C371-47B8-8678-F0E68481F930.jpeg

    Definitely a rooster, what color are those legs?

    It looks like there are pink legs on him....leading me to think Cuckoo Marans, perhaps? :)

    Whatever it is (i'm somewhat new to Chickendom), it isn't a blue Australorp :/

    Yellow legs mean you are right-- he's a Barred rock cockerel. Cute.

    Agree, yellow means Barred Rock. :)
