    Hi. I'm new here. I got my Bardrock chicks today. they are 2 days old. I got pulletts which are black in color and straight run which are yellow. My question is if the pulletts are black and the straight run are mixed why aren't some of them black and some yellow. I am confused! Can someone set me straight on this? Thanks. Donna

    All the barred rocks I have hatched are black with a yellow spot on top of their head if I remember right.

    No Barred Rocks are yellow. They are all black with a yellow/cream headspot. The yellow ones are another breed or they're perhaps White Rocks? Hard to say. If you ordered all Barred Rocks, someone made a mistake.

    Barred Rock chicks should be black with a white dot on the head. If the chicks are yellow, they are some other breed of chick.
