    I just picked up this baby for free with a couple of hens. Not sure if it is a boy or girl. I don't know how old it is, and it looks darker than the boy pics I've seen but has a dark pink/red comb. I have no idea what it might be mixed with and I didn't see any adult Barred Rock on the property :) He/she was very timid around the other free range chickens and I didn't see any possible siblings to compare. Hopefully you can help me!

    Might be a Barred Rock, or a Black Sex-Link (Black Sex-Link males are barred). Cockerel for sure.

    Yep, looks to be a mixed cockerel.
