    Purchased from a breeder yesterday but she wasn't sure which this was...she has both and she said she can't tell them apart at this age (around 3 months)...can you help this newbie out? we got 5 chicks total so there are others in the pics since they seem to "group" together...

    your link doesn't work, it takes you to the snapfish sign in page.

    I think once you have 10 posts here, you can use the Uploads feature in the blue bar near the top of the page, to load your photo's onto this site and post them from there.

    But, barred rocks are black with white stripes, and speckled sussex are reddish, chipmunky looking as chicks with white splotches as they get older......very different looking? [​IMG]

    the edge of insanity
    Sites such as feathersite have pictures of chicks/chickens that you can compare them too. [​IMG]
