    So I was HOPEING for all girls, but I guess that doesn't happen often enough [​IMG] Here's the baby in question. I was told he/she was about 6-9 weeks old, maybe I could also get A confirmation on the age too?

    The age seems about right. I don't know about gender however. I have 4 Barred Rocks (3 of which ended up to be roosters [​IMG] ) and I was unable to tell the males and the female apart until their tail feathers and combs started coming in.

    WIth that size of a comb, I'd be guessing female. I cannot see the fronts of her feet very well, but a female generally has black fronts to feet.

    Looks like my three BR girls did at that age.
