8 week old Barred Rock Hen? Or Rooster?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I've recently got into having a small backyard flock consisting of 6 chickens 5 of which I'm sure are hens, unsure about my Barred Rock....sad.png I live in an urban environment so a crowing rooster wouldn't be good, however I'd like to keep all of them if possible I was thinking if it is a rooster maybe trying a crowing collar and see if that works.....
