    I just got replacement ducks from Ideal for a couple that died and three of the wrong ones. They also sent six chicks for warmth. The chicks are all black with a white spot on the forehead. Can anyone tell me what these might be? Not that I needed six more roosters...

    Could be Barred Rocks or Dominickers.... I'd imagine Barred Rocks. Most likely roos as they like to get rid of them that way. But you never know [​IMG] Sexing mistakes are made all the time [​IMG]

    If they're barred rocks I might consider keeping one. I have a barred rock hen and am toying with the idea of breeding some of my own chickens just for fun. I guess the rest can grow up to be soup...
