    Got some chicks about a month ago and the guy had hatched them himself from someone else eggs. He said barred rock bantams, but this little chick has feathered legs? Any ideas?

    Sorry to add some confusion but if its a Barred Cochin it should have feathers on more than the outside toes, and a much more abundant amount by that age... I'm thinking the guy has a Cochin roo that flies over the run fences.

    marans often have the sparsely feathered legs on the outside...

    Wrong leg color for a Maran.

    I think its a mutt-- most pure-breeds have much more heavily feathered feet, including cochins. Barred Rock mix, I think.

    Usually it would be a little early to identify the gender but i am going to say pullet for two reasons: Barred rock pullets are much darker than barred rock roos and she looks very dark, and secondly, she doesn't have any waddle or crown growth, though it is very early to be sure [​IMG]

    And BR girly chicks usually have darker shading up the front of their legs as yours does.
