    Hey there!
    We just got 5 chicks, about 6 weeks old by our estimates, give or take. 3 (two pullets and a cockerel) appear to be Barred Rocks. These other two pullets (Grace and Princess Leia!) have us stumped - they may be a cross? Any guesses?

    Where did you get them from?

    I think they're both mixes, but with a good dose of silver laced Wyandotte. The darker one could pass for a Wyandotte except for the white earlobes. the lighter one has incomplete lacing, a common pattern when one parent is a laced Wyandotte and the other isn't.

    And both look female [​IMG]

    They look very similar to some of the Easter Eggers we hatched.

    Yes, I was thinking Easter Egger too! I guess we'll find out when they start laying :)
