    I am new at this and a little confused. I have two barred rocks and was told they are both roosters.

    One looks like a rooster for sure, but the other Isnt convincing me. It does have a big waddle...but a smaller comb, and shorter tail feathers. Is it a rooster or a hen? Here is a picture of both:

    cockerel. It's just a little slower to mature than the other bird. In another few months they'll even out.
