    I have a Dom Bantam hen she has white/pink legs and lays white/pink eggs also has a rosecomb Im sure on her breed so i know this other one is not a Dom. Well I was sold a hen they said was barred rock bantam but she also have white pink legs, lays bright white eggs, Straight comb and really dark barred like checkered. I am breeding her with a crele roo and her babies at 8 weeks are almost completly black with lil bared at all. Ill try to get a pic up soon.



    See I thought barreds were supposed to lay brown eggs and have yellow legs?

    Maybe she's a mix? Although I can't come up with a barred mix that would lay a bright white egg.
