    The people we got our hens from were pretty positive they were all hens...we do have one rooster we raised from a baby chick but this little "lady", we call her Dixie, has started to do half cock sounds. Not full cockadoodledoo just a short cockadoo...we believe "she" is about 15-17 weeks old...I have more pictures if needed and am trying to get a video of the sound. Any help would be appreciated!

    :welcome!

    That is a dominique, not a barred rock, and he is a very pretty cockerel.
