    He/She is about 5-6 weeks old and im thinking its a he. "He's" bigger than the other one who i believe is a she. If anyone can help that would be great.

    Your he might be a she, it doesn't seem like she's got too much comb development,by this age you can usually tell really easily by comb development and color. Or he might just be a late bloomer.

    I have a barred rock about the same age as yours, she is HUGE, and incredibly strong, with legs like tree stumps. We call her "Big Bird". Same thing, no comb development, or reddening of the face. I'm inclined to still believe she's a pullet! My plan was to sell her, but I kinda want to keep her just to see how she continues to grow!

    Maybe it's just the angle of the camera....but your for certain "she" looks to have yellow legs? Would that be a buff rock?
    I have absolutely NO idea if your "he" is a he or she....but now I think I have to pick up a couple of those pretty BO's! [​IMG]

    It looks like a pullet.

    The other one with yellowish legs - are they really yellow or is that just the camera?

    Seriously, I have several BOs and I think that is a girl, but it wouldn't be the first time I guessed wrong!
