    Good morning, welcome to byc.

    I agree, Barred Rock. Is that your only chick?

    It is not. I have 2 others I am unsure on breed. I will post pictures. They look different from this one. They were hatched at school and a friends son gave them to us. I'll get pics uploaded this afternoon.

    I'm curious to know what she is as well. I received McMurray's ornamental layer collection 3 weeks ago and have one very similar to yours.

    I was thinking barred rock as well, but McMurray only lists Silver Penciled Rocks in their rare assortment.

    Is it just me or does it have "puffy" cheeks? It could be a Cochin or a Cochin mix. Also I think it is a possible cockerel.
