    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] This chicken is 4 weeks old. It's father is a mostly white Auracana. I'm pretty sure the mom is a barred rock.

    Woo hoo! We are really hoping for hens so that we can keep them (we are inside city limits). Fingers crossed.

    It might be a roo. I think you might have a sexlink in you hand. If you breed a barred hen to almost any color rooster, you make sexlink chicks. Barred roosters and non-barred hens(color varying on what color roo you use) I know you can't use white leghorns to make sexlinks because of the dominate white gene 99% of them carry, IDK about Araucanas.
