    The blop on the head is more yellow, which is not like my barred rock.

    Thanks for letting me pick your brains!

    actually I just did some looking into and think there may have been a mix up at the hatchery mine look more like Black Australorp's than Minorca's[​IMG]. So now i'm confused. Australorps are pretty but I wanted Minorca's.[​IMG]
