    Hi everyone, this is my second attempt at posting pictures, hopefully these ones give a better idea, they do show the true colors better. My situation is, I can't keep a rooster and my kids are already getting attached so I would like to know asap if any are roosters as the person who sold them to me will take roosters back and let me have females in their place. ALSO.. they are supposed to be Barred hens but Marlie and possible even Misty look a little different to me, what do you think ?? Oh and they are 3 weeks and 3 days old.



    Here is Marlie, oh please let Marlie be a girl, my 9 year old boy LOVES " her "

    Well 3 out of 4 would be great - I was holding on to hope that maybe Batman was Batgirl lol but I am soo happy that Marlie is looking like a girl because my little guy loves them all but really really loves her because she is calm and likes him to hold her.

    Do you think that they all look like Barred Chickens ?? Marlie has feathers at her feet and even Misty has a darker look ?? Humm

    I'm a newbie, but Marlie and Misty don't look like BR...
    As far as I know... BR don't have feathered leggs... and there is no barring on Misty.

    JMO... remember I am new (an obviously bored... because I played hookie today)

    batman could be batgirl, she does have the female coloring as far as barred rocks go. marlie looks girly but is a completely different breed of chicken, maybe a cochin? also it looks like misty is getting a rose comb rather than a single comb so she might be a dominique and robin i cant see her comb so i don't know about her. batmans legs look more cuckoo marans colored though.
