    I just got 6 chicks 3 from the local feed store and 5 (unsexed) from a local chicken enthusiast. We acutually lost two chicks (unsexed) to what I now believe is coccidia. My two favorite ones:( anyway we have 3 barred rock (olive eggers) and 3 easter eggers. I think we may have two roosters in the bunch and since we live in the city I am trying to get some opinions...

    is that right?

    If they are olive eggers, they are not "barred rocks", they could be a barred rock mix with ameraucana. However, I notice they have feather legs, so it think they are a Cukoo Marans and Ameraucana cross. That would definitely make them "Olive Eggers". Keep using the corid if you suspect Cocci, see the archives for dosage advice, etc. Good luck with your chicks. BTW, I am in So. Cal, too! I know there is someone in San Diego who breeds barred olive eggers, I bet your birds came from him. He's on BYC too. If so, they are a project he's working on, Barred Olive Eggers. [​IMG]

    Yes we are in North county San Diego, and they live down the street from us if it is the same person....does that mean that the sexing rules do not apply???

    Hello and welcome to BYC![​IMG] I'm so sorry about your loss to coccidiosis.[​IMG]. It's too early to sex them I believe.

    [​IMG] I hope you get answers on your chicks. We're still playing the waiting game to see what ours are.
