    Well, here's a 16 week old BR cockerel, my boy Dutch. If you post pics, we can tell you. I usually know by 4 weeks old what I have on BRs. By 20 weeks, you would know if you had a rooster by the saddle, hackle and sickle feathers. And the boys are lighter than the girls.

    Here is my Zane at about 18 weeks old.

    Speckledhen(Cynthia), you always have such great pictures of your birds. I enjoy looking at them and comparing mine to yours. (I'm still learning)[​IMG]

    Thank you, EllyMae. I do love my birds, especially my Barred Rocks.

    Wow Speckled Hen your birds are soo beautiful. I have three BR Pullets. They are quickly becoming favorites around here!!

    lacymarie0526 I think you should post a pic. The people on this forum are good and can usually tell you in a short amt of time what gender your bird is if they have a pic to look at!!

    I just had a 5x7 printed of my roo, Mr. Bojangles, and have it framed in my kitchen, lol.
    I will try to get it loaded for lacymarie because I think he is just now 22 weeks.

    I found one! I used to own a cockerel named Maverick. Here he is at 20 weeks exactly.

    wow, he really looks like my Mr. Bojangles. Does he make growling noises when he is "offended"?

    I sold Maverick right after that picture was taken. He was a real sweetie. His new owner was happy to get him for her two year old layer flock so she could hatch new layers.
