    What do you think? I hope the size is not too big.

    How old are they? I really can't say what they might be since I don't have any experience with Barred Rocks, sorry. Nice looking though!

    Sexing aside, I LOVE those fluffy feet!!! [​IMG] Is that some kind of Barred Rock Cochin?

    I think they are about 7 weeks. I have no idea what they are. We got 30 chicks from the feed store and the guy told us they were brown egg layers and that was all the information we got. Most all have fluffy feet except the one and some of the black ones have fluffy feet. I think they are really cute.

    I am curious to see what they turn out to be also. I bought a bunch of "assorted bantams" chicks and have several black and white ones that look just about like these. I am guessing roosters. I have a lot of hens that are showing no sign of waddles so I am assuming the ones with this much "red" are roosters. I hope I am wrong though!

    Darn...I was hoping for all hens cause I had not planned on raising chicks. Oh well as long as I don't have too many more turn out to be boys I will be fine.
