    Every Barred rock I've had, were very yellow in the legs. It's been 6 years since I've had them...so you tell me. Barred rock?

    Ps...she's huge! As big as my Australorp. She's a 1 1/2yrs old.

    Hmm... I would be tempted to say dominique with two recessive genes for a single comb.

    My guess is she's a hatchery hen... so that is possible.

    Angie, If that's Gertrude I noticed she is also a lot thinner in the hips than my Barred Rock. Sort of taller and thinner: is that a Dominique thing? I don't know. My BR (at least that's what we ordered..) has pinky-yellow legs with a slight black wash down the front. She's shorter and squatter than Gertrude.

    Quote:That's how I remember mine were like that, shorter and yellow legs. Gertrude is a BIG girl! Not that it matters what she is. She's probably the friendliest of the 4 and laid a HUGE brown egg this morning. [​IMG] Just curious.


    some days I just can't spell...
