    Is a blue rock a breed? or what do they have to breed together to get them?....I have some blue chicks I got from a breeder and thats what he said they were. I had never heard of such a breed. Here's a pic, tell me what you think.

    Those feet look slate in color, so no, that's not a true blue Rock. A blue Rock is basically a Plymouth Rock with blue coloring. . . That chick there is likely some sort of mutt. You can do such basically by crossing a blue colored chicken with a black, white, lavender, or splash.

    Quote:Agreed with what Illia wrote, but ALSO Blue Rocks have reddish/yellowish eyes.
    Below is a pic of 2 Blue Rocks I had, note the eyes and legs and beak coloring.
    Nice chicks you have none the less Domestic. They look like they`ll grow to be some good looking birds for you. [​IMG]
