    Hello chicken4prez (love the name :D)
    How do you tell? Is it the thickness of the toes / legs?

    Thanks! Love yours too!
    Well, I read on a thread here that male Barred Rocks have a big spot on their head, and female have a tinier spot. Also, like @mommyvlv said, you can tell by their legs too.
    Hope this helped!
