Hi so I have had three barred rocks in the mix of my flock for a few years now. My eggs have for the past year has these weird brown spots in them. So I researched it and the explanations all led to that my hens were getting old, which didn't make sense to me since they were still in their prime. I recently just integrated 24 new chicks into my flock of 12 and walked out this morning to a somewhat little crow from a BARRED ROCK in my flock. The peculiar thing is that the barred rock that crowed has been in my flock for many years now, which leads me to think that he's the reason for the brown spots and has just kept quiet until now. I'm going to post pictures of him when I get home, it would be a great help if you could confirm his gender ( he does have a more prominent wattle and comb, but his tail feathers look like my other barred rock pullets, so that's where it gets confusing) Thanks so much!!!!!
