    The barred rock......hen or rooster? Momma the gray auracana. He/she doesn't crow....at least I haven't heard him/her.

    By the way, our black australorp had a minimum of 7 chicks yesterday. They are adorable.

    The barred bird is a rooster, but it's not a barred rock cause both parents weren't rocks [​IMG] It's a barred mixed breed roo.
