    2 month old Barred Rock Hen or Roo?

    I ordered 8 barred rock roosters from a hatchery. One of which turned out to be a Black Jersey Giant, now I am worried one is a hen.

    Hoover’s mystery chick?

    I believe this chick was SUPPOSED to be one of the barred rock chicks we ordered. But it’s not looking like the rest... it doesn’t have any barring and has a little white on the underside. He is about 2 weeks old

We believe one of the Pekins is a drake and one is a female, but we have no idea about the white layers because they are so close to the same size! Is it still too early to tell?
