I've got one response for cockerel and one for pullet. Any advice on how to narrow it down? The behavior is the main thing that made me think it might be a cockerel. Very jumpy, flighty, often jumps on top of my other EE pullet, and generally seems more high energy and aggravated. Then I started looking at other posts on Barred Rock sexing. Should I just wait and see another week or so?
one thing, BR pullets cannot have as light of barring as roosters. Rooster barring is finer (thinner), but your cick doesnt have adult feathers yet. Watch for comb growth way too early, saddle feathers, etc. Also, the plain yellow legs aren't a sure tell tale signs, but usually mean cockerel. Pullets tend to have a black tint to the legs
