  5. I was shipped 7 barred rocks as packing peanuts (did not even know what a chick looked like).


    I grew them to about 5 weeks and SURE ENOUGH that were ALL boys and they turned out to be barred rocks.

    I am sure Speckled hen knows what she speakds of. that is why she is called "Speckled Hen" .
