    The kids call it Eagle. Obviously it is a chicken, not sure the breed or sex. This is our first batch of chicks.

    I have the exact same colored chick that I believe was my "Free Rare Chick" and she is now 4 weeks old and I was hoping she was a BR! I will try to post picture of her so you know what you might be able to expect. I have to go to work right now so it willbe tomorrow before I can do it. I love mine so far though![​IMG]

    It is a Barred Rock. I see 3 characteristics in that chick that resemble Barred Rocks.

    1. The striped feathers.
    2. The white dot on the head.
    3. The black stripe running along the top of its toes.
    I have raised 4 generations of Barred Rocks (In chicken years, that is), and they all looked like that.

    yeah, the skin color on my marans are lighter, took me a while but I found a pic of my babies. So I will have to agree to the barred rock [​IMG]
