    Hey we have 2 out of 15 BR hens that have a pea comb and a beard. They are pretty and docile but not sure if or what they are crossed with. Also have 4 BR roos in which 2 look different from the other. Two look like Dominique but the other have coloring. [​IMG]

    The bird featured in the center of this photo is a cross/mix/mutt. There's some barred parentage back there, but this bird is not a Dom nor a Barred Rock.

    Looks like your barred birds had an Easter egger in the mix somewhere. Are you getting any colored eggs?

    Thats what ive been thinking on the mutt. Yes we get brown and greenish eggs too but we do have americaunas as well as the BR and RIR.
