    10 wk old barred rock, we're not sure if it's a rooster or a hen. Any help would be appreciated!

    Narrow black bars, wide white bars, and a big red comb already; for sure a cockerel.

    One of mine had colors like your but it was a hen (because she was a farm store bird). She didn't have the long saddle and tail feathers or a comb so tall so young. I agree with the other posts.
