    There is a dark wash on the legs and when we first got her ah him! it had a small contained white spot on the top of it's head.Is there any chance at all this could still be a hen?

    This is our first experience with chickens... and it has been interesting and they are so fun to watch. We have a barred rock that is in question of if it is a she or a he.. We have named her Betty and gets along with the rest of the gang which consists of 4 australorps, 3 guienia hens and 3 other barred rocks.... Betty and the rest of the gang is just 3 months old....

    There's no question. That is also a cockerel.

    Both those BRs are cockerels, no question whatsoever.
