Barred rock boys are lighter than girls so I would say the one in the front is a boy and the one in the back is a girl. The one in the front looks like it's comb is bigger too. Sorry if he does turn into a rooster! I am no expert though, I only have one barred rock and she looks dark like yours in the back! Good luck!

Thanks for your feedback :) fingers crossed its not but I think you are right, although I'm hanging on to the fact that its feet are pretty dark
