    I assumed I had 1 female and 2 males BUT after reading some comments on other threads I am not so sure anymore. I would appreciate it if you wonderful experienced chicken people can help me identify the sexes of my 3 Barred Rocks. Don't mind the wet paper towels, they are in the temp cage for while I clean the brooder.

    They all look like girls to me. Females have a dark wash down their legs and males are more silver/grey in color then black. That's my guess anyway. Good luck!

    Thanks for the reply. Whats funny is I only ordered 1 female, the other 2 were suppose to be males from the Fry Pan special. But if they all turn out to be female thats cool too, I'll just keep them then for the eggs.

    I think the 1st and 3rd are boys and the middle is a girl.
     
  5. 1st 2 look like pullets to me and last a cockerel, but could be wrong.
