I bought this "barred rock" for my hubby who loves them. Well, I noticed as she grew that she didn't look the same as our previous barred rock. The bars were wider and more pronounced. Our currect girl looks more mottled. Has white legs, and she just started laying these huge dark brown eggs. Not quite chocolate, I think this may be due to being a hatchery bird, which is what my laying flock is mostly composed of. I can't figure out how to post pictures????? Figured it out!
