    Please look at these pic's of our 9 week old "gang", courtesy of our first broody, Sarah, and tell me if you see anything that looks female (I think we might have 1 hen and 5 roos:/)
    P.S. Never mind the date on the pic's - my camera won't let me change it...[​IMG]

    People ask me, "If you have a rooster, why don't you hatch your own chicks instead of buying them at the Farmer Supply?"

    THIS IS WHY!! [​IMG]

    Enough chicken to feed you through the winter, though...if you dare.

    I don't know how Barred Rocks develop but my guess would be 1 pullet and rest are roo's. I have heard that BR's pullets get large comb and waddles but who knows it that's 100% true. Pretty birds thou [​IMG]

    I was told that BR boys look more white than black. The hens are very dark and look more black than white and you can't go by the way there comb and wattles look because girls can get really large too. Good luck!!

    Your pullet has odd colored legs. I'd say not a pure BR.
