Im pretty sure this is the one you're talking about. 

 

Heres the barred rock.

I do believe that slw is a cockerel. And I'm not positive about the one behind it :hide

 

And to further complicate things, those are some very red wattles on the barred bird. Did these birds come from a hatchery or a breeder? The coloring on the barred bird says pullet, but that's only if it's a pure bred bird. If it's mixed you can't go by color and it could also be male. How old are they?

 

On the bright side, all your Sussex I can see look like females :)

I got them from a family friend who owns a large nursery in town and sells a lot of chicks this time of year. He orders the chicks in groups that are sexed and unsexed, which I bought sexed for this reason. I got them last Thursday at 6 weeks old so now they should be just over 7 weeks old. And these are supposed to all be pure bred.

So the barred Rock is probably a pullet. I've seen a few birds on here over the years that have those scary red wattles this early but nothing comes of it. Everything else is saying female. 

 

I do think the one Wyandotte is a cockerel. Sexing is only 90% accurate, so I think the odds were not in your favor this time.
