    Hello!!! I'm new to this site and i love how much information there is and great feedback. So i just got 4 chicks from our local feed store and it said "barred rock" and I'm curiously wondering 2 things: are they full size BR or bantams and do I have 1 rooster or 2 in my group? The one larger one has the tail feathers starting to stick up, distinct white bar, seems to be the one in charge. I have another one a lil smaller not as distinct white bars nor tail feathers like the other one that stick straight up more like the other 2 that I'm pretty sure are hens and tail fathers pointed down. Please help with any information!! I think the are about 5/6 weeks. I'm about to add a couple brahma buff and Millie fleur d'uccle bantys to my mix so I'm hoping they are bantys to stay w the smaller size. I live on a Egg farm already of 3 separated flocks 2 of which have roosters in each and the others just alone. We got ours for my daughter, not sure who's they are now lol. Thanks for any advice
