    [​IMG] Well.. I thought I knew which was which, but maybe not! They look so much alike. Any way to tell which is which? The all have wing feathers coming in, and only one doesn't have white tips on them. There are supposed to be 2 BR's & 2 BA's.

    Barred rocks should have a white spot on top of their heads.

    Perfect! Thanks. I was right, then! [​IMG] Queenie & Sister Sarah are BR's, just as I thought.
