    First post and before I posted, I searched the many threads in this section - yet I'm still confused!
    I need help sexing & identifying my birds. We adopted them as chicks and didn't receive much info as they were hatched as a 1st grade school project.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    rocks have yellow legs, his are very white (which is why I didnt say barred rock) would he still be a rock since these came from a school hatching project

    He's pretty but you're right, he isn't to standard for a Rock. I think if you bred a barred Rock and a cuckoo Marans, you may get a bird that looks like him. Aren't the eggs usually donated from local farmers for classroom hatching? I'd guess they are all mixes.
