    Hello all, it has been a while since I have posted here. We have five ten week old chicks this year. Four of them are barred rocks, but I can't figure out what the other one is. I am fairly new to chickens, this is our second year to raise chickens. The picture is not the best in the world, but the best I could get at the time. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Thanks for the quick replies! I had looked at many pictures of different breeds and never even though about slw. I guess as I get more experience, I will get better at identifying the different breeds.

    Mine get prettier every time they molt. Most Wyandottes seem to go through awkward stages before getting their look.
