Barred Rock/Easter Egger?
My four hens are now 6 months old and I'm wondering if you guys could confirm what I think they are? I bought them from someone that got them from a lady that had way, way too many chickens. We assumed they were Barred Rock/Easter Egg crosses and that they were all the same age. One has always been bigger than the others, and now another one is almost her size. The third is a bit smaller, but the fourth is the same size as my 8 week old silkies! She's always been tiny and I thought she would fill in, but she hasn't much. She seems taller than the others and she's the one with the crazy feathers on her face (her name is Pixie). Pixie is very sweet, VERY docile, calm and always stays back with the Silkies when the others take off foraging. She's always been that way.
Picture 1 is Doris. She looks the most like an Easter Egger mix to me. She's the most dominant chicken I have (over the rooster!).
Picture 2 - Doris, Phyllis, Rose - the three main chickens. Two look almost like a Barred Rock and are the biggest. The one in the middle has more brown.
Picture 3 - Doris and Rose
Picture 4 - Rose, she's always been the biggest one and has matured the fastest.
Picture - Sweet little Pixie. The smallest one. Doesn't seem to be maturing at all.
3 Silkies: Leonard, Penny and Bernadette
