    Hi! I bought these chickens from someone and they told me they were Barred Rock Bantams. After searching I found out that Barred Rocks lay brown eggs. Occasionally I get a brown egg but most are white. Can anyone please identify these chickens for me? Thanks so much!

    The person you bought those hens from are probably right they look like barred rocks. Your eggs might not be white they might be tinted cream. I have heard that some Barred Rock chickens have the ability to lay tinted cream instead of brown.

    Thank you so much for answering. I took a picture of the eggs...when I compare them to a regular white egg from the grocery store they do seem tinted. I just wanted you to see them and maybe they will help in the identification...thanks again!
