    Anyone have pics of their barred rock pullets at six weeks? I'm wondering if my girls are boys....

    Mine were 6 weeks in this pic. Cockerel on the left, pullet (AKA Millie) on the right. I had 2 of each, the color differences were really obvious once I learned what to look for.

    I hope you find out that you have who you want! [​IMG]

    Same as above. Barred Rocks are reasonably straightforward in sexing. Roo is lighter and little comb and wattles already showing at 5 weeks.
