    They sure do look like barred rocks to me :)

    Edit to add: They also look like pullets...because of the dark leg wash and the fact that their combs are small and not bold pink. Granted, I am not an expert, but that's my guess...two female Barred Rocks.

    Maybe someone with more knowledge will pipe in here!

    The legs and feet just started turning grayish. When they were younger the legs were a yellowy orange like the beak. They are are no more than 6 weeks old, probably closer to 5 weeks. I bought them 2-18 and the were very small. I was hoping for Barred rocks but the legs had me confused as well.
