    I have 2 barred rock chicks they are almost 3 weeks old. Their barring looks the same to me but one has more of a comb then the other one.. Let me know what you think? Thanks!

    In the picture with both of them you can see the comb difference

    The 2nd pic is the chick with the bigger comb. That chick also has a big dot on its head. The other one has barely any dot

    Given the difference in comb size and the wider white bands on the barring, I'm thinking the chick in the foreground of the top pic and in the second pic is a cockerel and the other chick is a pullet.
