    See attached. I just noticed today that my barred rock has a comb that is a little redder and more prominent than the RIR and araucana that were hatched at the same time (august 6, 2008). Can anyone confirm the sex of my little barred rock??

    Thanks!

    However from the description it sound suspiciously rooish, as our RIR hen was the first to get her comb...

    Go to your uploads, it will pop up in a seperate window, you'll see an image url, copy, then make a reply on your thread, and above the reply window you'll see "img" click on that and you'll get image brackets in the window. then just paste the url in between the brackets.

    Hope that made sense.

    Her lines look dark.

    Hard to tell, it may still lighten up.

    The spot on top of the head, is it wide and diffuse or small and concentrated?
