Male or female?

post #1 of 7

I bought these almost a week and a half ago and the breeder said they were between 6-10 weeks old. I believe they are on the younger side because they were smaller. I'm noticing some red on the barred rock.. Here's a photo from today....

I don't see anything screaming cockerel on any of them so I'm thinking they are all pullets. :o)

Thanks, I wasn't sure about the barred rock because the redness on her face is much more pronounced then the other two.

You're welcome. The barring looks to be the darker barring of a female rather than the lighter barring of a male. Also, I'm thinking it's not pure Barred Rock either as the legs do not look yellow to me but closer to the whitish/pinkish legs of a Cuckoo Marans (another barred breed). Of course it could just be a trick of the lighting making the legs not look yellow.

They all look female. I also would not be surprised if the barred bird is a Marans, that looks like very pink/white skin on those legs.
