Barred, straight comb, yellow legs, clean legged---that all adds up to barred Rock. Not your rare/exotic bird.

"It" looks a lot like a Barred Plymouth Rock.
Thanks :) Explain what "Barred" looks like so I know in the future please....

They said they ship the order with 1 Exotic Rare chick --- I didn't order a Barred Rock, so "it" is an extra. NO clue which one IS the rare, and maybe they didn't include one.
That would be highly disappointing :( - thank you!

Thanks!!

I just got my baby chicks in on 4/26. I ordered 8 red stars, 8 RIR(one died
), and my free chick! I've been searching everywhere trying to figure out what "it" is! Mine looks identical to yours!

Is it possible for chickens skin color to change??? Marans have white skin and the once yellow legged chick is now a speckled, white skinned chicken!

AND, there is NO way I got the chick mixed up with another because it was the only one of it's kind.


I'll update the pic later today.
