Is this a Mottled Java or Barred Rock Hen?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by WinstonPhoenix, Apr 24, 2013.

  1. Hello! This little girl was sold to me as a mottled java, her sister looks just like a mottled java but she has different colored legs and feathers. Do you all have any idea what she could be? Perhaps a Barred Rock?


    Thank You,
    Kim

    We have a chick, hatched from our Black Javas, that looks just like this. We have no other type of chicken for the hens to have bred to. So, I am thinking it is something in the genetics.

    Looks like a Cuckoo Marans to me. Definitely not a Mottled Java.
     
  8. Wait, Penelope is a Mottled Java? I've never heard of that breed but I'm new at this chicken thing, but Penelope looks just like my Ancona?

    The two breeds are very similar.
     
  10. I just did a brief search on them(shoulda done that before I posted oops) and yeah, they do look pretty similar----
    Learn something new everyday. =)
