    I bought these chicks a month ago at a local feed store. I dont know anything about chickens but am trying to learn. Their feet and legs seem to be changing to gray. Comb is coming in and is peachy or orange. Eyes look green. They are very friendly and curious. They were more black when younger with a few white specks. Now seem to be black with white speckles all over.

    You have a Barred Plymouth rock. Though next time you will want to post in the "what-breed-or-gender-is-this" area of the forum! :)
    Hope that helps you.

    By the way. I think thats a pullet!
