    I have been looking at this site for a couple of years, waiting for the time when I could actually have my own chickens. I am excited as we just moved to the country...I just picked out 12 chicks at TSC and another 12 at a local feed store. The first 12 were supposed to be black australorps but I have a sneaky suspicion that they may actually be barred rocks. The other 12 are rhode island reds. I am having so much fun watching them grow and being entertained by them. The kids absolutely adore holding them. I am very glad to be here!

    Solid black chickens are black with yellow bellies as chicks and barred chickens are black with yellow bellies and a white/yellow head spot as chicks. It's impossible to confuse the two once they're grown, but they look very similar as chicks.
