Unexpectedly now Im paranoid! I bought our four chicks from a well known farm locally. They hatch there and sex and have a great track record! They have a return policy as well, if we get an unexpected wrong sexing we can exchange for the one we wanted no problems at all, thats nice and all but now I think I love this bird the most out of the four lol! Its a barred rock, 2 weeks old. Ive been reading on this site about the sexing of them and now Im thinking I have a roo! not so much 'speckled' as in has barring the feet have little back to them Large head spot additional info is that s/he has always been the leader bird since we brought them home. Compared to the black sex link chick this one is more grey than black too. I know only time will tell but hey whats some fun guessing now?!
