    I posted pics of this chick at 3 weeks a while back, now it is 5 1/2 weeks old. Everyone thinks it is a barred rock mix. I agree, the neck feathers really look "laced" instead of barred now. Very pretty. It is the same size as the BOs of the same age in the pics. Still hoping for a hen! What do y'all think? :)

    Thanks for the update, and congrats!

    did her feather pattern change much with maturity? I'm curious about that coloring on the breast...do you have an updated pic by chance?
