I posted this under raising chicks earlier but I then realized I may get a better response here, so sorry for reposting but.... We placed an order for 5 RIR and 5 Easter Egger pullets that we received 1-10. They came packed with (supposedly) 5 barred rock roos. What I got was 5 RIR's, 2 chipmunks, one yellow, 1 brown and 6 seemingly identical barred rock roos with the exception of one of their head spots slightly, looking more of a V than a dot. I called the hatchery and made sure I was identifying them all properly and while the woman was skeptical they had shorted us an EE she agreed all evidence pointed that way and gave us a credit. Today they are 12 days old and all of the pullets are feathering nicely while the roos are just starting to get a few wing feathers...with the exception of the one with the odd shaped dot on its head. It has almost as many feathers as the other pullets but not quite, and definitely has the same pattern as the Barred rock roos. Silly question I'm sure but is it possible that this odd chick is actually an EE, a barred rock pullet or just another Barred rock roo who happens to be ahead of the curve lol? Any ideas?
