hi all
I have 3 barred rock hens, one has always looked a bit different she holds her tail taller and straighter where the other girls curl their tails a bit. she has a just slightly larger comb ( single) she started squatting for me 2 weeks ago and shortly after I started getting two white eggs a day the white leghorn and hers... the other two hens are squatting but no eggs yet. they hatched out march 17th 2011 ( the white leghorn.. no squatting at all) my dark Brahmas dont seam to have any interest in laying yet either,. they are all the same age, within a day of each other.

Jett also has white ear lobes where the other two br hens have red earlobes.. is she just special or is this normal barred rock..

i thought for the longest that she must be a boy.. hence the name change from Joan Jet.. to Jett Lee,,

love her though sweet and smart sooo smart..

I'm not complaining she turned out to be a girl just confused on the color of her eggs.

I have a RIR that layed brown eggs forever. Then all the sudden the eggs are white & to this day there still white. Guess she ran out of paint.
