    This chicken is from Ideal Poultry and part of a pullet surprise, I received it June 26 as a day old chick. Thought it was a barred rock from day one. Notice anything odd? Well, white earlobe, no butt seems odd to me.

    I confused! Of course I also thought I had BO until I saw white earlobes and realized they were buff minorcas. [​IMG]

    Could be either a barred holland or a production black.

    That's a white egg-layer and most likely a production black line specific to ideal poultry. (BUT I am just guessing) If it is a female, you'll get loads of white eggs. Females are barred darker than males. Good luck

    not a barred holland, they lay white eggs, but per breed id they do not have white earlobes, one of the only chickens that this occurs in.
