    Here’s my 6 week old Barred rock. I’m seeing a little pink near the comb but still unsure if it’s a he or she. Anyone want to take a guess? EB2D8B3F-2A69-4F4D-BE0E-C3393FE84871.jpeg 5F6B409E-E1B8-487D-A56E-EEA2EDA7267A.jpeg

    Light barring makes it look like a cockerel to me

    Thanks, my suspicions are confirmed! That makes 3/10 for the boys. What about this one? He’s the last one I’m suspicious about. I know polish are difficult to sex until they’re older but this one acts like boy and he’s jumping on everyone’s back. BC9D4C7C-E36F-45A2-B155-E3391759BD79.jpeg

    I'm actually leaning towards pullet, but some more pictures of the comb would help.

    The comb is still small but it’s getting pretty red. 8B959232-EFDE-4CEF-9885-6EDD7D2B9A50.jpeg 2CD37C7A-184A-4A73-8179-07332928B2DF.jpeg
