    She is a barred rock. She has shading over the yellow legs, which is correct.

    Yes That is normal for barred rock pullets, that is actually way way that they can be sexed as dayold chicks, the pullets will have that shading and the roos wont and they have other diffenences in their color patterns as chicks that helps as well, but yes she is a barred rock.
