    I have 5 chicks that should be all pullets, but I'm starting to wonder. Two of the partridge rocks have brown combs, and one has a bright yellow comb. Then the 2 barred rocks have bright yellow combs. What should I be looking for as far as which is which?

    With Barred Rocks you can usualy tell because females will have a dark streak down the front of there legs and when they are smaller they will have smaller white head spots compared to the males. I am not sure about partridge rock.

    Good Luck Hope for pullets,

    The Partridge Rocks are all pullets.The males have a completely different feather pattern than females.
