    I got 6 chickens from tractor supply about 8 weeks ago. We were told they were supposed to be barred rocks. Im pretty sure we only ended up with 2. :/ Can anybody help pur with the breed of the other ones!!!?

    It looks like you got 2 Barred Rocks, 3 red sex links and the black one may be a Black Australorp (hard to tell with the picture).

    It's a nice mix, hope you aren't disappointed.

    ^I agree or the reds might be Rhode Island Reds. That's what our RIR looked like last week :) All good IMO, we have all 3 if they are RIR.

    Hi and [​IMG] - glad that you have joined us. You could post your question on the "what breed or gender is this?" forum for more responses if you wish.

    All the best

    This age is a good time to post at "what breed or gender is this." Individual photos are usually best.
