    We have four Barred Rocks. Got from Tractor Supply, said to be of same age, but no telling I suppose. In any case, I am concerned about he/she pictured (closest). Much more developed comb, but not really bigger or lighter. more talkative, but not crowing. about 15 weeks old. Cannot have roo in neighborhood. Thoughts?[​IMG]

    Can you get individual shots of head and full body? It would be a lot more helpful. Its hard to tell from the picture since we cant see the tail and full body.

    I can and will later today, thanks. But, I can tell you that the tail feathers do not look any different than the others, perhaps shorter if anything and their bodies are the same size / shape approximately.

    However, at least from this photo, it looks like a pullet.

    I'm thinking pullet at point of lay, but need a better pic to be positive.

    We definitely need better pictures; too much hardware cloth, too much shadow and not enough bird to make positive determinations of gender.

    From the photo, I'm leaning towards pullet.
