I have been reading posts on sexing Barred Rocks...and I'm afraid of what the answer is...but I must know because I can't have roos. I also know it is really hard to tell in 1 week old chicks but anyone have a guess yet? If it is a roo I'd like to rehome it as soon as possible so we don't get attached.

There are several threads about the splotchy head and yellow legs and speckledhen has had very good luck with sexing this way (per the threads). Apparently, pullets have some dark on their legs and a defined spot...this is just the opposite of what the guy told us at the feed store. Stupidly we didn't research before buying. We had a nice little pullet picked out too...dark legs and no spot
