    Still might be too early to tell, but if anyone can see, I am curious!

    Cockerel. With barred rocks it's easier to tell by the head spot. On a female the head spot would be a lot smaller and wouldn't go over the neck.
    Barring is an autosexing gene.

    Haha, not REALLY what I wanted, but he'll help eat some bugs nonetheless.
