    Was in with barred rock straight run and i picked "her" because she had the darkest legs and the smallest ddot on her head (no dot at all) she is supposed to be 2 1/2 weeks old now. Is "she" a br or did she get mixed up? [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    She looks like a Black Australorp to me. Not a Barred Rock.

    The only other chicks they had were pr and bsl. I was only comparing her to my other 6 bsl. Maybe a black australorp was in the last mix?

    It's definitely not a Barred Rock. I agree with Wyandottes7, it's most likely a Black Australorp.

    Even if it had no white on it as a 3 day old chick?

    I'll be in the barn!
    I had some chicks like this and they turned out to be Partridge Rocks.. and if I'm right then that would make her a hen.

    My Australorps have only been occasionally broody over the years, but they have been great layers--better than my Barred Rocks. If it turns out to be an Australorp pullet, you should get loads of large, brown eggs from her. :eek:)
