Four 9-week old barred rocks; is one a roo? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Look like 4 pullets, purely based on the lack of male barring. A cockerel would be showing wider white bars, where these 4 are all showing consistent coloring lacking the double barring. Also, at 9 weeks, a cockerel would be showing prominent wattles too and possibly roo feathering.

Lack of all the roo markers, I would say you have 4 lovely pullets smile.png

Sorry for the confusion, Yes, I meant here are their pictures at 59 days  They are now older and both are laying eggs, i.e. both pullets.  I will be better about separating the age at picture and that they're now older and absolutely pullets.

20 layers of various breeds, 1 rooster, and four F2 Super Blues- 2 pullets and 2 cockerels at 15 weeks old, and 16 chicks who jumped into my cart at the feed store!

Hopefully just a "roo-ey" looking pullet! But I think you're probably right... Thank you
