    Got 3 Barred Rocks that were hatched May 24th so just over 6weeks old. They are my first barred rocks so I'm trying to figure out sexing, they were sold as week old pullets but one has grown VERY fast but is darker but has thicker legs... One is very light but the smallest of the 3. Anyways here's some pics. Thanks in advance!

    Biggest darker thick legs reddest comb and wattles.

    First one is definitely a cokerel, I'm not sure about the second one, and the third one is a pullet. :)
