    I am posting more photos and hoping that someone can identify the breed. I got some good advice, however I am needing some more before I mislead someone. I am confused because the chicks are identical to barred rock and the hens look more like the California grey. And then the white one came along from one of my hatches. They are not mixed with any other breeds and were sold to me as Barred Rock Bantams..please all of you chicken experts out there...help! I do not want to mislead anyone when I sell chicks and I am hoping with the photos that one of you will be able to tell me. Thanks again

    The tail and lighter color of the rooster makes me guess Dominique. They look very similar to barred rocks, but are slightly different.

    Except that dominiques have rose combs, and these birds clearly have straight combs. These birds also seem to have white legs as opposed to yellow. I'm not sure what they are...but not dominiques.
