    What might the barred one be? It is a bantam pullet but I have no idea what breed it could be. It has a single comb.

    Looks exactly like a barred rock and its a large rather than bantam. Do you know the sex of it yet?

    It could be a Barred Plymouth Rock bantam, or a Barred Old English Game.

    Pretty sure its a bantam though because I have a standard that got mixed in with my bantam mix from the hatchery and the standard is huge compared to this one, and they're both 6 weeks old.
    I thought it might be a barred rock, but how would their tails look at this age? This one is like a round dot and has little stumpy feathers. It is a pullet, the others are already crowing and showing wattles and comb to be bright red. It might look a bit different because I did edit this photo yesterday to make the picture more clear but in real life it is very yellow.
