Any ideas how to tell a barred rock bantam from a barred old English or other barred bantam variety? They are almost 6 weeks old. I know I should just wait a bit longer before asking, but I'm hoping someone can give me some clues as to what to look for. Moon (big) & Pepper (little) - 5.5 weeks These guys came from an assorted bin at a feed store. We got them for pets and for my children (7 & 9) for 4H. The look both the same and very different (more slender, longer necks) than my two big barred rocks. It's hard to tell how much of that is age and bantam vs. regular though. Penny - 1 year I'm guessing they are both female, but interested if anyone has different thoughts. I might think male for the bigger one and female for the little one, except otherwise they look the same and it is kind of a miracle the little one is still alive. At 1 week old she was having seizures, falling over, and we were on the verge of putting her out of her misery. Somehow she recovered over the next 24 hours, and we managed to get rid of it's perpetual poopy bottom with some fancy probiotics. I'm hoping she doesn't have some other problem with her. She has quite the personality and loves to be the center of attention.
