I crossed a Barred Rock with a Dixie Rainbow to develop what I call Rainbow Rock. The first generation chicks all looked just like Barred Rock chicks. The roosters matured looking fairly similar to each other. The hens look very similar to each other. The roosters have patterning that varies from the Barred Rock. The hens look like a brighter version of a Barred Rock. Now I have hatched a 2nd generation by breeding the 1st generation birds to each other. This has brought out more variety in the chicks. There are two chicks with totally black heads, which I've never seen in a Barred Rock, nor in any of the 1st generation Rainbow Rock. There is a chick with a pied face. And this time I got some that look just like the Dixie Rainbow hens did as chicks. I am looking forward to seeing what these birds look like as they mature.
