    I thought I bought a barred rock (couldn't remember the name after I left the store so I wasn't sure). Can you guys help ID this gal? Has a white dot on the head and underside. Grayish legs. The top is black/gray and the wing feathers are all black except the tip. This is a week old chick now and from some of the other barred rock chick pics, it should have the white stripe on the feather but mine dont.

    x2 :) Very cute. If it is indeed a barred rock, it looks like a pullet.

    Looks like a barred rock pullet. The white stripes will become more defined later. If you were seeing white stripes now, you'd have a cockerel.

    Great to know! I'll keep an eye for the white patches.
