    I got these today from a friend that had gotten them around Easter for her daughter, she heard I had chickens so of course I was the go to guy lol.

    I know the black and white spotted are barred rocks but are the gold ones Buff Rocks? As of right now one of the barred rocks looks like a roo, he is lighter gray and has a red crown and wattles already, hoping the others are all hens [​IMG]

    Yes, the gold ones are Orpingtons in the Buff color and the barred ones are Plymouth Rocks in the barred color pattern. [​IMG] The lighter barred one is a male.

    Yeah I figured he was definitely a roo, he is the "brave" one trying to jump on everything in the coop and run and his crown and wattles already being red is pretty cool, makes things easy to identify lol

    If your little buff has pearl colored legs I would say it's a buff orpington.
