    [​IMG]. I had somebody give her to me and I have no idea what kind of chicken she is. I didn't think much of it till I just saw a picture of one identical to her (this picture is the one on the Internet, not of my girl) thanks

    She's brown and white speckled with blue tips. I didn't think barred rocks had brown in them.

    Void where prohibited.
    That's not a barred rock!
    You might as well call it a RIR!

    Donrae thank you. I can start looking stuff up about her now that I know what I'm looking for.
