    I attached the pick of the Barred Rock chick she is maturing with white tips on flight feathers mainly black with a few very few grey markings on breast. Basically Black. [​IMG]

    That was one of my thoughts the other was black Orpington.
    The other black hen was suppose to be a hybrid brown ?

    So it seems I have a Austro vs a barred rock and a ? Instead of a hybrid brown. Welcome to the world of chickens [​IMG]. Thanks for your reply.

    You black one looks like an Australorp, if you get a better picture of the red one we can answer your question.

    Do you see the white dot on your chicks head? That is a sign of barring, her chick does not have it.
