    I had received my order back in February and received extras for warmth. I originally assumed that they were Black Sex Links. I have never had Black Sex Links in the past and I knew that they had Barring similar to a Barred Rock. But looking at them more closely these last couple of days, I am pretty sure they are Barred Rocks and that two of them might actually be pullets. Take a look and give me your opinion.

    SpeckledHen - No these are not your babies already.

    #1 - Barred Rock Roo

    #2 - Barred Rock Hen?

    Do you agree?

    we have 22 barred rocks & they never looked that dark,, we could always see their bars,, the ones you have there dont look like they have much white in them.

    I have 2, well just one now because I sold one today along with an EE. Mine both looked exactly like chick #3. They came from the hatchery as sexed pullets. The folks here said they were pullets when I posted pics last week. I agreed, but I wanted confirmation before listing them for sale as pullets.
