    My barred rocks are about 3-4 months old. The one in front here is larger than the others from the same batch. "She" also has wattles and a comb while the others don't. "She" is lighter in color and has to be between us and the others. Is this a rooster or possibly a more mature hen?

    Definitely a cockerel, and good looking too.

    I agree. It's a cockerel.

    Being lighter and the red comb and wattles are a dead giveaway.
