This chick is 6 + weeks. He/ she is with one for sure rooster and not quite sure if it's 2 yet.
Here's it's pics any info I would love!
I have a idea but don't want to say Intel I hear from experienced BR owners. Here we go...[IMG] the picture with the white Olive egger is obviously a cockerel . I read some where that other cockerels are slower to grow. If they have a dominant cockerel . I'm not sure if this is true or not? Any info would be great. She looks like a hen acts. Like one too! Her tail is very hen like as well .

He looks like a mixed breed. There may be some Barred Rock in him, but he definitely is not purebred.
Here are a couple of pictures that should give you a great example of the difference between a Cockerel and a Pullet. Both of these beauties were born in April making them about 6 months old. It has been my experience that Cockerels have much more white and much brighter red comb and waddle. preschoolmama you do not have a Barred Rock Roo.. It looks to be a mix.
