    I just got three (hopefully) pullets today from my friend; they are all six weeks old. I'm assuming one is a Barred Rock, but I have no idea what the other two might be. Any guesses?

    I have to agree with the breeds SLW, Speckled sussex and a barred rock AND that the SLW is looking rather rooish [​IMG]

    Great breeds - that's terrific! I think these were all supposed to be sexed pullets... ooops.

    Thanks for all the quick advice!

    I thought silver lacing was white feathers with black on the edges? Maybe I'm wrong, but I just wanted to make sure.

    Silver Laced Wyandotte roo
    Speckled Sussex pullet
    Barred Rock pullet

    I hate the initials of breeds being posted. There are some that can be 2 or 3 breeds.

    Example: BR= Barred Rock
    BR= Blue Rock These two should actually be Barred Plymouth Rock and Blue Plymouth Rock. Just saying.
