    I think barring can still change before she is an adult but I think she is very pretty.

    Even hatchery BRs can be very attractive, though her barring is quite typical for hatchery stock. I love BRs, both utility and show quality.

    You're so kind. She's a "train wreck" isn't she? [​IMG] I love her anyway. She's almost as sweet as my "pet" RIR that thinks she's my parrot. [​IMG]

    I'm paticular to the barred rock breed, they were my first babies. I think she's very pretty!

    Hey, I have hatchery girls and I have some that are a few generations removed from the hatchery, of various qualities. They are fabulous layers with good personalities. And from my group, some close-to-show quality birds have been produced, so dont worry about her barring if you love her! BRs are a great breed.
