    Looks to me like the two dark ones came from the Barred Rock and the reddish one came from the RIR.

    I am going to say the RIR for the red one and the white rock for the other two. My reasoning is because the red one looks like a RIR and for the other two I say white rock because I think the barring would be sexlinked. Maybe someone else will come with better reasoning, lol.

    I think the barring is passed from the dad, not the mom.

    With a barred mom and non-barred dad, only the male chicks would have barring (although the female chicks would carry the gene on one of the the x chromosomes). So if they're from the BR that means you have 2 pullets. [​IMG]

    Quote:Yeah.. I guess its very possible they are off the white rock.. After all. i thought i saw "black" (barred rock). But those are blue. which could come from the father "Hence.. the blue red/white laced? color"

    The one in the back is more blue and the dark one in front is more black and looks like a barred rock chick...I will try to post a separate pic later.
    Thanks for the feedback!
