    These ladies are supposed to be barred rocks but one appears different. Can anyone identify them for me? [​IMG]

    Do you have any other photos of them? I'm thinking you may have cockerels possibly,

    This is the lighter colored one.
    There doesn't appear to be any comb yet. [​IMG]

    After looking at a thread on this forum re: sexting Rocks it looks as though the lighter one is a Rooster. :-(

    The lighter colored chick is not a barred rock it is a dominique. Can you get a full body pic of it?

    I agree, Dominiques are typically more fuzzy apearing, almost like an ungroomed appearance. BRs have yellow legs, while Dominiques have pale pinkish legs. The barring on the bird pictured is not cockerel BR barring. Cockerel BRs are white with black barring, opposed to pullets that are black with white barring.
