    Just looking for confirmation that my barred rock is a pullet. She has the dark legs, not yellow, but her comb is much more grown in than her sister and is not as yellow as hers. She is not the most cooperative during photo shoots, so hopefully you can tell from these pics. She was sold as a girl, not from a straight run. She is 4 weeks old, please meet Pippin:

    That's an awfully red comb for four weeks old. I'm leaning towards a roo, too.

    can't help about the dark legs, but it does look like a roo. my barred rock girls are 8wks old and don't have any combs as pink as that.

    I read somewhere that for sexing BRs you look at the white spot on its head. The bigger the white even if "splashed" looking it is male. But yeah the dark legs would have me thinking female. Good luck, br roos are supposed to be gentle guys. I am expecting 4 br pullets but kinda hoping for 1 roo in the bunch [​IMG]
