    Hi,
    I picked this barred rock hen/cockerel up over the weekend and the guy I got it from says its defiantly a hen. What do you think?? Thanks for any feed back. Martin [​IMG][/IMG]

    That's what I thought too. He's a bit of an ugly thing at the minute!!

    Definitely roo. I've had a barred roo- that's exactly what he looked like at that age! Don't worry, he will be just beautiful!

    That is a rooster, and a very good quality BR at that. Congrats. I'd take him in a heart beat!!
