    Can anyone help figure out the gender for my 2 barred rocks? They are approximately 7 weeks old.[​IMG][/IMG]

    Looks like a male to me but I don't see a pic of the second chick.

    I'll be in the barn!
    They are both looking male. The barring is really "bold" white. Females generally have a darker barring.

    That's what I was afraid of. Thank you so much.
