    Last Saturday I bought 3 Barred Rock Chicks. Can you tell if they are roo's or pullets please? Hopefully I loaded the pictures correctly - there should be 5 pics :)

    It looks like you have 2 pullets and 1 roo. They are so cute!

    Thank you for the opinions. I sure hope at least 2 of them turn out pullets. Last summer all my chicks turned out roo's. What color eggs do Barred Rocks lay?

    I think you've got 2 pullets and a roo. Pullets are usually a little darker and since the one on the left looks a little lighter and has the nice comb and wattles that's my educated guess. The two on the right are definitely pullets.

    I tried to fix your pics for you. I see one possible roo in there, but the coloring is hard to see in that light. Cockerels are lighter in color than the pullets. Going on comb alone, if they are the same age, I'd say one male.

    Looks like 2 pullets and a roo to me. In the first pic, the one on the far left looks like a roo.
