I have 4 barred rocks and I'm pretty sure 3 of them are Roos! They are 11-12 weeks old and 3 of them have very large combs/wattles should I wait till they are 18-20 weeks to be sure before sending them away? I can't have that many roosters

The last photo posted shows you exactly how to tell the sexes apart. The males have 2 copies of barring gene and females only 1. Double barring in males make for wider white bars which at a glance make the birds look lighter colored. Females are dark in appearance. There is a lot of other ways to tell too but genetically specific to barred/cuckoo that's the gig. Two copies male to one copy of gene for pullets.

Thank you everyone for confirming. I just didn't want to accidentally get rid of a pullet before knowing for sure
