Why does everyone think this is a rooster? I'm on a learning curve for my own barred rocks.

kecrow- First off, the color. Roos are gray and white, hens are darker, usually black and white. Secondly, super thick yellow legs. Hens would be a little more delicate looking. Thirdly...huge bright red comb and wattles! The hen would be more pink and smaller.

Hope this helped!
