    was sold this chicken as a Barred Rock. Can Barred Rocks be all black? My other two younger ones already have their white colors in with their black, this one only has black!

    Barred rocks can be mostly black as chicks.
    How old is it and where is your picture?

    I am 99% sure he is not a barred rock.
    Maybe a black sex link?
    Do you see any slight hints of green shine in his feathers?
    If so...australorp
