    I got two chicks from the feed store that both were in the Black Star bin but they look nothing alike. I know the other one is a Black Star but what is this one. Thank you for any input..

    If I remember right the males should have lighter colored beaks and no black on there feet. RIR rooster x barred rock hen.

    Black Stars have a white dot on the male chick's head because they are barred. You can sex at hatch.
