    So, I am a little new to the whole chicken thing...just checking to see if these are both Barred Rock banties? One has white legs the other has black. Does that mean anything?

    Thank you...The New Egg [​IMG]

    Neither of them are Barred Rocks.

    They look more OEG than Barred Plymouth Rock bantams.

    Nooooo! I hate it when I get 'taken'. Next time more research, less spontaneous purchasing....*hanging my head in embarrassment*

    Yeah I don't think either are. My BR (roo) never had a tail like that, and they look pretty small. I don't know what they could be though. [​IMG]

    The first one is feather legged, and both look to be cuckoo rather than barred. I can't tell whether the 2nd has feathered legs or not. Which one has black legs? And probably a silly question as I don't think either are one of the 5 breeds with 5 toes, but how many toes do they have?

    They look to be nice birds, but we need to see legs and feet to get better ID. Could be marans?

    They look more cuckoo than barred to me, and certainly aren't rocks. They're kinda cute, tho.

    Awww they are adorable, I would love to find some barred OEGBs around here. Sorry you didn't get your Barred Rocks though.

    Don't feel Bad please. They look like healthy poultry and that's important!

    They are cute and nice. You can problem sell them or give them as gifts. I would take them if we were nearby!

    I'll be glad to ship you some barred rock hatching eggs if you need some. Please just pm me and thanks!

    Here's a pic of them

    Thanks and have a blessed day.
