Hi
We have two barred rocks about 18 1/2 weeks old. These are backyard chickens and we can’t own a rooster.

Very concerned the one “hen” looks more like a rooster. Can anyone help? We need to find a new home if it’s a rooster before the crowing starts! thanks!

They are beautiful! I'm raising 2 PBR's right now. 3 weeks old.
For those of you who said they're near lay, how can you tell?
The full, red comb/wattles.....production is hormone driven, these same hormones create a full, plump, RED comb and wattle. Non producing birds have paler, drier in appearance, smaller combos and wattles.
