    As one of my Barred Rock pullets grows, I've noticed on her throat a hint of very light gold feathering. I haven't noticed this on my other Barred Rock, but she is also a little younger. Is this normal coloring, or do you think she may have been crossed with another breed? I bought the pullets from a breeder. Thanks in advance!

    I have not noticed any gold on my barred rocks. They are hatchery birds. Don't know if it helps or not, just my experience.
