    New to the chicken world here. Wife and I two weeks ago acquired what we thought were 7 Plymouth Barred Rocks. They are 3-4 weeks old. As they have grown I noticed that 1 does not look like the other 6. Here are a few pics. Does anyone have a clue as to what this one might be?

    Your little black chick looks to be either an Australorp (either gender) or a female black sex link. You should ask the person you got them from to clarify what breed.

    Also, fyi, that little barred rock is a male. If you bought all pullets, you need to return that little guy.

    thanks for the reply......I can't complain too much, they were given to me. My buddy told me that they all came from only barred rock. He does have Australorp but says that he kept his barred separate. I thought that little one might be male. My buddy gave me 7 and I think that besides the unidentified one I might have at least 2 males that he will take back. Again thanks for the reply.

    Yes Free always changes things. Well I am now 2 barreds short. Buddy took 2 males and I'm still undecided on a third. The black one he thinks is a Iowa Blue.

    I bought these two white girls (I hope!) from a local feed shop and was told they were Red Sex Links. Obviously I'm starting to doubt this as they are not red and one has puffs on her cheeks. Any ideas??
