    What will the females of a cross between a barred rock rooster and an araucana hen most likely look like? If this is a repeat question, I apologize but I'm new here (my first post) and there are over 300 pages to sort through. I made it to page 26:th

    All chicks will be barred from the BR sire. I have hatched several BR over BBS Ameraucana chicks. If yours are true Araucanas, they will look slightly different from these. Here are a brother and sister:

    Thank you for the pic! Is there a name for this cross? I've been calling them Rockacaunas...

    I just call them Barred Easter Eggers since the females will lay green eggs. (brown egg breed x blue egg breed = green eggs)

    The barring varies and some have beard and some do not. Here is the sister to those two above:
