    My bet is that what they ment to say at the farmstore was plymouth rocks and instead said barred rocks. I would dare to venture that they are a pair (male and female) partridge rocks.

    The first one looks like a Partridge Plymouth Rock cockerel and the second one looks like a Gold Laced Wyandotte pullet. Single combs are becoming more and more common in hatchery stock.

    Quote:A Rhode Island Red roo and Barred Rock hen makes a Black Sex Link chick. I've never seen one like the Rhodebar, but that must be what happens when the hen is the RIR. It's pretty!
