    I got 4 "Barred Rocks" 2 weeks ago and I noticed last week one was not getting feather barring. So, I waited another week to make sure, and yup, no barring. She has a white chest, white wing tips, black legs and the bottom of her feet are black. Jersey Giant, right? I have BAs and yeah, they have pink soles, but couldn't remember if they were black or not as chicks. The hatchery messed up when they sent the BRs to Agway. Somehow this little girl made her way in the BR box!

    Check the chick's skin. Aussies are white skinned and Giants yellow.
