    I know it'd probably be a mutt... but here we go!
    A Barred Rock Rooster X A Black austrolorp hen

    Anyone have pictures of babies/full grown ? Thanks if you could help!

    All of the resulting chicks would be black barred.

    They will look like Barred Rocks, the barring might not be as clearly defined, but that's what you should expect.

    If you were to invert the crossing and use a BA rooster X a BR hen the resulting chicks would be sex linked, with the males all resembling BR and the females would be solid black. The male chicks would have a white dot on the top of their head indicating their gender.
