    These little ones will be 4 weeks old Thursday, and every picture I have looked at online of Barred Rock Chicks look nothing like these two. What do y'all think? Pictures included.

    They are not barred rock unless they are a cross. Now the barring may turn white as it did with a BRH/BR cockerel I have.

    I don't know what they are, but I don't think the first one is even a girl.....looks like a roo to me.

    Chickenbottom....please don't say they're Roo's, I have 5 already,lol.
    Also, I bought them in Houston at Wabash Feed, I was told they were BR's, but they definitely don't look like BR's. If anyone can identify the breed...that would be great!

    Could they be a Dark Cornish cross? Those legs are big and the coloring looks familiar...
