Barred Rock Sexing Question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What do you think? Roo or Hen. It looks so different then the other one the same age. Very aggressive too. About 9 weeks old I think at this point. Thanks![IMG]

Both look like pullets to me if you are in the 9 to 10 week range....BR roo's get red, large combs by 10 weeks.

 

Snotty behavior happens in pullets too.

When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ (forgiven ~ Sanctus real))

F.R.E.E.D.O.M--In order to truly appreciate true freedom, you must:
First Remember Everything Emmanuel Did On account of Mankind
-Sarah/me

Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn... Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.
