    I received this chicken from a friend's son who hatched in class. I believe it to be a barred rock, but not too sure. Originally everyone said pullet, but that was at 4 weeks. Here the chick is now at 3 months. Any thoughts? [​IMG]

    Can we get a better pic? Profile shots, of the bird standing naturally without the wire are best for sexing.

    Mixed breed cockerel. One parent may have been barred, but those feathered legs came from something else.
