    These four barred rock chicks were hatched one week ago.I read a lot of articles about sexing barred rock, by the color, by the feet, also by the wings. But I still can't tell they are cockerels or pullets. Anyone could help me to sex them?

    X2 based on coloring at that age, but you'll know for sure when they feather out.

    Unfortunately, Dada and Si were bited by the wild birds. They are gone. Till now, Roar and Si are near 4 weeks old. They are just quite similar. Si has a bigger white mark on its head. So, I guess they are same. Both of them are roos or pullets. Am I correct?

    Again, Roar comes to the front.

    It's still really too early to be certain But Roar & San look like pullets - they have dark wash on their legs
