    Barred Rock Cockerel or Pullet? Probably close to 3 1/2 months? I'm not sure of exact age. I bought what was supposed to be 2
    BR pullets. They looked identical up until about 2 weeks ago. This one's comb and waddle are now larger and redder than the other Pullet and it's coloring appears to be just slightly lighter. It's size is slightly larger but not significant. I live in the city so hoping to know before it crows!

    It does look like a cockerel. The lighter coloring in Barred Rocks is typical of the cockerels.

    The large comb and wattles, light barring, and tail feathers coming in indicate cockerel.
