    I haven't learned to sex them at this age, sorry. But if you post pictures of them in a couple of weeks I can try to help you!

    I would say all cockerels except maybe the third picture, could be a pullet
    My barred rocks were easy all the boys had distinct black and white stripes on wings with combs. My female had mostly black with some speckled wings and very little comb. At two weeks some of my cockerels were getting pink in their combs. Usually chicks with a large white spot on head will be cockerels while little to no spot will be pullets.

    Hi there, the chicks are now 3 weeks old and I am pretty sure I know their sex... out of 6 chicks I think I only have one roo :). He is bigger,with light legs and feathers and a larger comb. I'll put a pick up so would love any opinions.
