    I'm thinking hen. It looks like the bark bars are dominant in the picture.

    We went to a chicken swap and got 5 barred rocks and were hoping to get a mix of hens and maybe a couple roos

    Could you get a full body picture? Including tail feathers?

    Lighter barring normally indicates cockerel, but will have to see when you get those pictures :).
