    What a cute little fuzz butt.
    My barred rocks had light spots on their heads.

    I vote Australorps. If they are BRs you'll know very soon. The barred feathers are visible very quickly.

    The last pic you say are Barred Rocks look like Australorps to me. All BR chicks have a headspot, large or small, but it's there. And the wing feathers come in barred from the start. Trust me, been breeding them for a couple years and I've never had a BR with no headspot.
