    We are not sure if we have a Plymouth Rock or a Barred Rock or something like a sussex. She was hatched in July. We took as many pictures as we could to show you as much of "Houdini" (she was a master at escaping her little cages as a chick) as we could. Can anyone help us? Thanks!

    Speckled Sussex? Barred rocks are black with white barring. She's beautiful

    Definitely a Speckled Sussex hen. The are a great breed; hardy, friendly and gentle (my children made lap pets of ours), and good layers of large, brown eggs. :eek:)
