    I got this puller from a co-worker who told me she ordered red barred rocks. I can't find anything on this breed. She looks more like a wyandotte but I can't tell. Any help?[​IMG]

    Partridge Plymouth Rock have single combs Wyandotte have rose combs. Both breeds come in partridge color.

    Thanks Egg! I'll go get a picture of the comb and post it. I did have a Wayndotte rooster that had a single comb. He was the very nice to look at but mean as heck!

    It is likely aa error in stating the breed's name. The breed is Plymouth Rock. The varieties include Barred, White, Buff, Partridge, etc.

    Likely what the person meant to say was Partridge Plymouth Rock.
    This is a common syntax error. We see the expression Plymouth Barred Rocks here, when is supposed to be stated as Barred Plymouth Rock, of course.

    I agree with the other poster. The color is considered partridge. Breed is either Plymouth Rock or Wyandotte depending on comb type.

    No, not Barred Rock.

    Plymouth Rock, yes. Partridge Plymouth Rock, yes.

    Yeah I think because Barred Plymouth Rocks are so sooo abundant any time somebody sees Plymouth Rock they just automatically put Barred along with it. A similar mixup happened a few months ago with us. We called up to see if Country Junction had any chicks for sale, the woman said, no chicks but did have a whole list of 4+ month old pullets. Among the names she said they had Barred Rocks. We got down there and the poor thing's walking all around the pen wondering to herself where all the Barred Rocks went because she swore they had some. She'd seen them on the inventory list. We both figured somebody's bought them all up already. It wasn't until just recently when I went back down there again and noticed a bunch of now 6 month old PARTRIDGE Rocks that we realized her mistake.
