    Just as a fyi--if you order barred rocks from a hatchery, chances are your rooster won't be that pretty. That's a very nice looking barred rock rooster.

    That looks like a show quality barred Plymouth Rock. I doubt you would find any like that through a hatchery. You would want to find a breeder with show quality or heritage birds to get a lovely bird like that.

    I agree with everyone. Show quality Barred Rock roo.

    The bad news is that you can't get one from the hatchery. The good news is that BYC is a very good place to meet someone who has show quality roos!
