    This is a feedstore chick. I've never had a BA, and this one has a couple of white wing bars and a yellow head spot like a BR. It looked like a BA in the store, but now I'm wondering.

    Speckledhen, our resident BR expert, isn't sure either! Those of you who have raised BA's--what do you think?

    I read the thread below that said that hatchery BAs can have white on them until they lose the juvenile feathers...[​IMG]

    Looking at the feet I'd say Barred Rock.

    If it's a BR, I bet it's a roo then, too! Phooey! I love BRs, but I have two and was looking to get a new breed. What would BA feet look like?

    ....heading off to Feathersite!

    My BAs have very dark legs and feet.
