    Hi there, this is my first time farming chickens so I'm still learning everything but I've been curious but this one Barred Rock that I have. It is much lighter in color and has very little barred mark on its legs. It's comb is also a little larger compared to the other chickens that I have same age. I was wondering if somebody can give me an educated guess on if it's a rooster or hen. Thanks(The photos are little blurry but you can still make it out)

    I have to agree with Chicken Girl1, cockerel and pullet, your lighter one being the cockerel.
