    How old are they? I'm thinking pullet on this one, but you may have to wait a bit longer to be sure and I'm no expert!

    By the time BR are this size there is no mistaking the rooster. So this is a pullet.

    There could be - if you have high quality Barred Rocks - they take a bit more time to sex correctly :) But hatchery.. yeah.. it's pretty dependable. This is a girl.

    Do you mean lighter? Cause a barred rock rooster shouldn't have any red..........
