    A friend of mine had a chicken wander into his yard. He wanted to know if it was male or female. My first thought was female because I thought barred rock roosters were more white, but I really am not sure. This is the only picture I have.
    Hopefully one of you experts can help me out! Thanks :)

    Looks a little bit rooish to me, but could very well be female

    Looks like a girly to me. My barred's already had very red combs when they were very young these are them when they where just getting their feathers in. But with that said I could also be wrong 122.jpg
    Roos typically get very red combs very early in the game on some breeds.

    Aww cool! Yeah I wish I knew how old this one was. I have two barred rock hens that I raised from 3 days old and I thought this one looked like they did, but I'm definitely no expert.

    That looks like a pullet to me. I have 2 barred rock hens and they looked exactly like that one...

    Hey there. Been busy with work, and still trying to spoil the chickens in my free time! Hope you've been well.
