    The first 2 pictures are about 21 weeks and i thought thr were hend but now i have my doubts as i think i heard thrm crowing. Thr 3rd pic is only 8 weeks and when i bought het they said she was a hen. I sure hope she is but these barred rocks keep fooling me! Thought please:)

    Thats what i thought but hoped not. Got 6 roosters out of 7 chicks I got in May.. just bought the 3rd one today so glad to find that someone agrees pullet. These last 2 were the least " rooster " like looking ones of the original 7 so i thought they were hens.. until today. :( thanks for your input!
