    I also have dark/black legs you can't see here, but my feet are pinkish.

    It might be a barred rock. That's what mine looked like at a few weeks. It had the white tip on the wings. All the other yellow/white on the chest fell out and filled in black & white. Mine are almost 6 weeks now and very beautiful. Good luck!

    I got her at the same time as another labeled Barred Rock, and this one seems different. This one was out of the "assorted fancy breed" batch at the feed store.

    As compared to the barred rock she has an all white chest and a black speckled beak.

    But really it wouldn't surprise me if the feed store threw her in the fancy bunch to charge a little more for her.

    I think it might be a Black Australorp.

    Doesn't look like the several Barred Rock chicks I've seen from two different hatcheries. Her feet are the wrong color, and her white under-patches are extremely different. Of course, their could be lots of different BR baby patterns- I'm not even close to an expert.

    I vote with the Black Australorp guesses after looking in the McMurray catalog at their chick pics. Really similar.

    Awesome pictures!

    Its an Australorp. It has too much white for a Barred Rock.
