    I took in 6 hens from a friend of mine who's Neighbors keep buying chicks from chick days for their kids then when they grow to big they let them loose in the neighborhood.

    They lay brown eggs
    They look like barred rocks but they have white faces and bellies.

    Anyone have any idea??[​IMG]

    I don't think Dominique or Barred Rockā€¦.will be interested in what the experience breeders think.

    But gorgeous looking chicken!

    They're mixed breed hens. They had a barred father and a solid mother. The mother may have been silver based, or they also look similar to barred Rock/ buff Orp crosses I've seen before.

    I never said barred rock definitively, it was a guess. Yes, it would be nice to see what experienced breeders would say. Ones which breed that breed! I do not!
