    I bought them from tractor supply and they said they are Asian but they look like barred rock chickens! What do y'all think?? And also would u be able to tell me if I have any roosters in this group? They are 9 weeks old [​IMG]

    Only one pic is showing, but that's a Barred Rock mix. I've long suspected the 'Asian' chicks that hatcheries have been selling in recent years to be mixed breeds.

    When I was looking online for the Asian chickens they were almost solid black. When I went back to tractor supply a couple weeks ago they had some barred rock chicks and they were identical to mine so I was thinking maybe they messed up and got them mixed up ...

    The second pic is a possible pullet. The others are male.

    But they aren't Barred Rocks. Barred Rock males have two copies of the barring gene. All of yours only have a single copy, meaning they are mixes.

    A few weeks ago, someone posted about their Asian chicks they had just picked up from TSC. Some were red, and some had 5 toes. Pretty sure they are just peddling mixed breeds at this point.
