    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

    Do they have pink and grey legs/ feet or yellow and grey legs/ feet? Hold one in your hand and take a picture so we can see how big the chicks are.

    But you can see my hand in comparison... 2 are very dainty and fit perfectly in palm of my hand the other one is a lil bigger but had characteristics to female. The rooster is huge compared. Ill post better picks in a couple hours. Thanks for the help.

    I want to say they are large fowl and not bantams. If they have pink and grey legs/feet they are cuckoo marans, if they have yellow and grey legs, feet they are barred rocks.
