    I was wondering, i see them I have 2 barred rocks, but I thought it was like a sex-link breed.

    "Barred rocks" are merely the short way of referring to Plymouth Rock - barred. There are white Rocks, partridge colored "rocks" and the like. Plymouth Rock is the breed, barred is the feather color pattern.

    Plymouth Rock is the breed.

    Barred, White, Buff, etc is the variety.
