    Out of our 12 pullets (all 4 weeks old), there is one that roosts and makes non crowing sounds, has a Pinker comb, and is getting braver and more straight in posture. We wouldn't mind a rooster since we have a lot of property. Any thoughts? [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][​IMG]

    Barred rock Roos generally have wider white strips, but it's still too early.

    Roosting has nothing to do with sex

    Hey! Thanks for your answer, I know they usually have more white and I noticed the neck was whiter so wasn't sure. I know roosting isn't gender related lol maybe I phrased that poorly, WHEN roosting she made some funny sounds that I've never heard. Thanks
